Famed Nagasaki Survivor Visits Los Alamos

Surprising NYT story just posted on a Nobel-winning chemist who survived the atomic bombing of Nagasaki almost 68 years ago and has now visited the birthplace of the Bomb, Los Alamos, in New Mexico, to give a lecture.  It wasn't about the bombing but the subject came up.  The chemist said that even if Hiroshima bombing was justified the Nagasaki blast surely was not--it was mainly just to test the other weapon we were developing, using plutonium.  Surprisingly, some of his hosts agree.  For more see my recent book Atomic Cover-Up and my new book Hollywood Bomb.  (You'll find them over on the right rail of this blog.)
