Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[about his book "Fail-Safe", regarding a breakdown in military communications that results in an American nuclear attack on the Soviet Union] I believe it to be inevitable under the circumstances. That is why we [co-author Harvey Wheeler] wrote this book. I don't know of a scientist who has a direct knowledge of "fail-safe" who isn't worried. This is something people ought to know.

Trivia:

The last years of his life were lived in Berkeley, California. See more »
