Annotation Written in 1995, The author interviewed Los Alamos physicists for this report. Materials scientist Dave Cuchane is conducting a geothermal energy project for tapping heat from the Earth's interior. A Los Alamos team is using superconducting sensors to construct a multidimensional model of human brain activity. Also, the author visited Neutrino Village in the Soviet Caucasus, where Los Alamos scientists collaborated with Russian physicists on an underground telescope that examines subatomic particles to prove that the supposedly massless neutrino has mass. Interviews with weapons scientists, bomb designers and testers provide an appraisal of America's post-Cold War nuclear weapons program.
