HST 299 - The Nuclear Age

Course Units: 1
(Not Offered this Academic Year) The nuclear age began with the discovery of radioactivity on the eve of the twentieth century and continues on to the present.  The technology people have created to study and exploit the energy and particles released by nuclei, including nuclear weapons and nuclear power, but also many other applications in industry and medicine, have defined this age.  This course will survey these economic, political, social, and cultural problems facing mankind: the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and human-induced climate change.
