Did You Know?


Charlie Isaacs and Frank Winter have words -- Charlie says to Frank "You're afraid I'm the meteor that will make you go extinct" and Frank replies "What is it with little boys and dinosaurs?".

Charlie's hereby labels Frank an dinosaur, and alludes to the popular theory that the extinction of dinosaurs was caused by a the impact of a large meteor 65 million years ago, while Frank's reply is meant to indicate that he understands and mocks that allusion.

The problem is that the above mentioned theory, now commonly referred to as the "Alvarez Hypothesis", was first published in the Journal "Science" in 1980, and was only one of many competing theories at the time. It didn't become commonplace until much later, and was certainly not known in the early 1940s when the above dialogue is set. See more »

My personal experiences at Los Alamos
7 August 2014 | by fvaamvSee all my reviews

As a scientist ,white badge, in 1945 in Los Alamos, I find little in the series that resembles Los Alamos or the Manhattan project I knew. . The road to Los Alamos was paved and the directions given me in Santa Fe were very clear and easy to follow. however the last part of the road was steep and winding up the side of the mesa. We were never prisoners. Many times I drove to Santa Fe, nearby Indian pueblos, or for hikes without interference of any kind. The idea of plutonium samples arriving in a taxi in a crate of oranges is absurd.. The sample would not come from the Met (Metallurgical lab in Chicago,but from the graphite reactor in Oak Ridge. The scientific staff I saw at Los Alamos was a spirited team,led by an inspiring,knowledgeable, and thoughtful leader, Robert Oppenheimer.The security people I saw were tough but respectful of science and the staff. There were many more discordance's in this soap opera.
