The first thing that found in a section of notes I made for "the second draft" begins, I think, a link to this post:
Where Twigsnapper has written:
"A specific set of weapons effects in certain settings" = "a helluva bubble" (I think he means "whale bubbles," and not necessarily white whale bubbles...)twigsnapper wrote:It wasnt the bomb itself. But there is a specific set of weapons effects in certain settings which were in need of full description perhaps."langley wrote: "When Brown was involved in the high altitude nukes (Argus I think Paul wrote) it would have been for an interpretation of the ionic effects and other things. Track back and yea, the first big ion thing was the cyclotron at the Crocker Rad Lab. Even Bradford Shank and his electrostatic filters, its all ions. My thoughts on it. It bamboozled me at first, and then yea, these guys were heavily into ions. And thats the connection and commonality.
I hope someone is taking notes. That was a helluva bubble. twigsnapper
This discussion to stems from some of Langley's input about some of the unseen implications of dawn of the nuclear age, and Dr. Brown's peripheral involvement with that era through the likes of Bradford Shank -- and their stand in opposition to the emerging "nuclear establishment."
Anybody else care to speculate what Twigsnapper was driving at when he said this was "a helluva bubble" ?
