Scientific American: Sci/Tech Web Awards 2003

The editors at Scientific American have once again trawled the Internet for the best the Web has to offer and was one of them!

Their review: Even the most devoted Robert Oppenheimer fan sometimes needs some brushing up on the exact details of his 1950s trial transcripts before the Atomic Energy Commission. Good news: Atomic Archive is keeping close tabs on the minutiae of every last detail related to the history of the atomic bomb. From the fascinating (an intricately diagrammed explanation of nuclear fission) to the terrifying (an in-depth hypothetical example of what would happen if a 150 kiloton nuclear explosion occurred in New York City), the site covers all the bases. Science and history get equal play here--it's impossible to marvel at the wonders of physics without simultaneously shuddering at photos of mushroom clouds ballooning over Hiroshima.

Welcome to the blog!

Well, we have finally decided to create a blog for the site. I have been toying with the idea for some time. I just never felt like having to code all the html all the time. Then I learned about the whole 'blogging scene, and said why not.

So what is going to appear here? If you are a subscriber of the website's newsletter, pretty much the same thing, but I will be able to do more topical reports, rather waiting for enough items to send out an email.
