He Studied with Niels Bohr taught Richard Feynman and boned up on relativity with his friend and colleague Albert Einstein. John Archibald Wheeler's fascinating life-ings us face to face with the central characters and discoveries of modern physics. He was the first American to learn of the discovery of nuclear fission. later coined the term black hole. led a renaissance in gravitation physics. and helped to build Princeton University into a mecca for physicists.From nuclear physics. to quantum theory. to relativity and gravitation. Wheeler's work has set the trajectory of research for half a century. His career has ought him into contact with the most illiant minds of his field; Fermi. Bethe. Rabi . Teller. Oppenheimer. and Wigner are among those he called colleagues and friends. In this rich a..., What are little physicists made of? Geons, Black Holes & Quantum Foam, in John Wheeler's science autobiography. To the rest of us, getting excited over the properties of atomic nuclei and the forces that hold invisible particles together may seem eccentric, to say the least. But physicists hold the secrets of the universe in their heads, and they have a special place in human history. Einstein, Bohr, Fermi, Oppenheimer--their names are inextricably linked with the mysteries of the atom. Wheeler, among the most creative physicists of our time, tackled questions related to the nature of space, time, and gravity alongside his more well known colleagues. Renowned as a teacher, Wheeler worked with student Richard Feynman to imagine a subatomic world where particles move backward in time. With fellow physicist and former student Ken Ford, Wheeler has crafted an engaging look at the eye of the 20th-century physics hurricane. There's a lot of physics in this book, which may put off those shy of its terminology and abstractions, but the stories and photographs of the men and women who know the atom will help readers see the humanity in science, and the warmth and passion of its practitioners. This is a remarkable history of one man's part in revealing the underlying nature of everything. --Therese Littleton, 935150, Scientists, 935136, Professionals & Academics, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 952214, Physics, 952216, Acoustics & Sound, 952076, Astrophysics, 952100, Biophysics, 952154, Chaos & Systems, 952218, Dynamics, 952220, Electromagnetism, 952222, Energy, 952254, Geophysics, 952226, Gravity, 952228, Light, 952212, Mathematical Physics, 952230, Mechanics, 952232, Molecular Physics, 952234, Nanostructures, 952236, Nuclear Physics, 952238, Optics, 952240, Quantum Theory, 952242, Relativity, 952244, Solid State Physics, 952246, Statics, 952248, System Theory, 952250, Time, 952252, Waves & Wave Mechanics, 952050, Professional Science, 950756, Professional & Technical, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 956404, History of Science, 956400, History & Philosophy, 956280, Science & Math, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 956408, History of Technology, 956400, History & Philosophy, 956280, Science & Math, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 956414, Mathematics, 956494, Applied, 956516, Geometry & Topology, 956410, History, 956420, Infinity, 956484, Logic, 956424, Mathematical Analysis, 956534, Mathematical Physics, 956426, Matrices, 956428, Mensuration, 956430, Number Systems, 956432, Popular & Elementary, 956454, Pure Mathematics, 956444, Reference, 956446, Research, 956448, Study & Teaching, 956450, Transformations, 956452, Trigonometry, 956280, Science & Math, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 956718, Physics, 956720, Acoustics & Sound, 16060421, Applied, 956764, Astrophysics, 956762, Biophysics, 956530, Chaos & Systems, 16059551, Chemical Physics, 956722, Cosmology, 956724, Dynamics, 956760, Electromagnetism, 956378, Electron Microscopy, 956726, Energy, 106447011, Engineering, 16060371, Entropy, 16060431, Fluid Mechanics, 16060441, Gas Mechanics, 956318, Geophysics, 956730, Gravity, 956732, Light, 956534, Mathematical Physics, 956734, Mechanics, 956388, Microscopy, 956736, Molecular Physics, 956738, Nanostructures, 956758, Nuclear Physics, 956740, Optics, 16059371, Quantum Chemistry, 956754, Quantum Theory, 956742, Relativity, 956756, Solid-State Physics, 16060381, Spectroscopy, 956744, Statics, 16059391, Surface Physics, 956748, System Theory, 956396, Time, 956750, Waves & Wave Mechanics, 956280, Science & Math, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15307081, Physics, 15306801, Sciences, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 930040, Philosophy, 930042, Aesthetics, 15852131, Analytic Philosophy, 15852101, Ancient, 930044, Consciousness & Thought, 930116, Criticism, 930046, Eastern, 930082, Epistemology, 930084, Ethics & Morality, 930086, Free Will & Determinism, 930090, Good & Evil, 930092, Greek & Roman, 930094, History & Surveys, 930096, History, 17th & 18th Century, 15852111, Islamic, 930098, Logic & Language, 930100, Medieval Thought, 930102, Metaphysics, 15852081, Methodology, 930104, Modern, 930106, Modern Renaissance, 930118, Movements, 15852121, Ontology, 16036481, Philosophy of Religion, 930108, Political, 930110, Reference, 930112, Religious, 15852091, Social Philosophy, 930114, Theism, 5489589011, Politics & Social Sciences, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books
