Michael Hilzig spoke about his book, Big Science, at Politics & Prose on Friday, August 7, 2015.

If the Large Hadron Collider, its multi-billion dollar budget, and legions of scientists characterize science today, all this can be traced back to a sixty-inch cyclotron developed by Ernest Lawrence (1901-1958). Though Lawrence was awarded the 1939 Nobel for physics and much of the material that went into the first nuclear bombs came from his namesake Lawrence Radiation Laboratory in Berkeley, he’s been overshadowed by better-known contemporaries, a situation that Hiltzik, a Pulitzer-winning journalist, Los Angeles Times business columnist, and author of Colossus and The New Deal, remedies with this expansive biography/history.
