Bill Kolb's TRINITITE The Atomic Age Minearl is out.

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

Bill sent me a very rough draft about 5 years ago and I received an advance pre-published copy about a week ago and helped de-bug the very few errors I found in the text. I have known Bill for many years now and have gone on a number of U hunts out in Utah, New Mexico, Virginia and North Carolina with him. Carl Willis joined us around Moab in 2009 and later in Virginia. Bill's first book was a huge success and was written up here. "Living with Radiation, The First 100 years"

His new book simply titled "Trinitite" is a one of a kind book about the Trinity blast, its site and, of course, the mineral itself. A must have for any well turned out rad-freak or atomic history nut. Tons of great info of a highly technical nature as well as the humorous tale of Ralph Pray and his 1 ton rip-off of Trinitite in 1951.

Cool beans.....
