This is really intriguing...it makes me think of the mapping and imaging of
the nanoscale. But I suppose that takes us away from the nuclear/atomic and
fission/fusion topic. As a historian, I am less familiar with this seemingly
avant-garde approaches to melding art and nuclear science. With regard to
ITER - I would imagine an important aspect of it would be the simple one of
aesthetics in terms of how one plunks down such a large facility in the
French countryside. What efforts will be made, architecturally, so that it
blends in? This makes me think of the aesthetics connected to the building
L. M. Lederman, ŒŒWilson and Fermilab,¹¹ in Aesthetics and Science:
Proceedings in Honor of Robert R. Wilson (Batavia: Fermilab, 1979), pp.
These are just a few points of reference; the new book on Fermilab by
Hoddeson, et al. discusses Robert Wilson's vision for a "lab on the prairie"
in more detail.
