Description:

This book has 121 pages and according to the author its purpose is to “show how a series of experiments that took place around the end of the 19th century and that could have passed without anybody noticing them, generated a series of discoveries that took the world in less than half a century, to the most outstanding scientific era in history.” The discovery of radioactivity took scientists into the world of atomic structure and on to the nucleus of atoms and their alteration. “When they split it they realized that there was en enormous amount of energy stored inside and they started to locate—besides the diverse types of radiation: alpha, gamma, and beta rays—a whole zoo of particles whose life, in some cases, barely reaches a fraction of a second.
