Details

Dudley Buck was one of America’s leading computer scientists, the inventor of the superconducting chip Cryotron that promised ever-smaller computers, and coding systems vital to the space race. In May 1959, after top Soviet scientists visited his lab, he died suddenly. Co-written by his son, this book uses recently declassified documents and Buck’s own archive to explain the implications of his discoveries and question his cause of death. Slightly off-mint.
