    smj,

    Nicely said. You have the ability to break down and synthesize complicated sets of information and hand them to us in easily digestable parts. Amazing.

    let’s talk about the abelsons and the nuke sub and the dna hustles for a second.

    phil abelson was a berkeley man of course. he was editor of science, president of the carnegie institution, president of the international union of geological sciences, president of the american geophysical union, and was president of the cosmos club at the same fuckin time we’re told…

    phil abelson is one of the greatest berkeley hustlers of all time. he’s not quite at the seaborg or alvarez level, but he’s damn close. i reckon phil’s bullpsience quotient to be on par with the atom smasher, lawrence…

    phil was an accomplished alchemist, he co-discovered neptunium which cleared the way for seaborg to make up plutonium…

    phil also invented the nuke sub because he could diffuse the shit out of some uranium according to the narrative. he had to help that other berkeley hustler at oak ridge, oppenheimer, because oppie was behind schedule and whatnot…

    eventually the father of the nuclear navy, adm. rickover, would learn all about nukes at oak ridge under phil’s watchful eye we’re told…

    “Under the relentless leadership of Rickover, who received training in nuclear power at Oak Ridge and experience at the Bureau of Ships exploring the possibility of nuclear ship propulsion, the concept was brought to reality. In February 1949, Rickover was assigned to the Division of Reactor Development at the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and then assumed control of the Navy’s effort as director of the Naval Reactors Branch in the Bureau of Ships. In this capacity, Rickover was poised to finally bring Abelson’s vision to fruition.”

    … rickover was the fella that caused president jimmy to piss radiation…

    … the nrl stands for the naval research lab; which unironically was the first to fund the agouron institute…

    “The Agouron Institute, a non-profit research organization, was formed in 1978 as a vehicle by which new research frontiers and technologies in biology and chemistry could be investigated. The Institute commenced its activities with a small grant from the Office of Naval Research on the marine fouling problem — the beginning of a long-standing program in environmental microbiology. By 1982 the research program had expanded considerably and had obtained funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Early successes in the protein engineering and computational groups led in 1984 to a commercial entity, Agouron Pharmaceuticals, formed to exploit the potential of rational drug design. It became a major biotechnology company and its first rationally designed drug, Viracept™ is a leading HIV protease inhibitor. The use of protease inhibitors together with reverse transcriptase inhibitors in a multi-drug therapy regime has led to a dramatic decrease in deaths due to AIDS. In 1998 Agouron Pharmaceuticals was sold to Warner Lambert that then merged with Pfizer. In the process, the endowment of the Institute increased substantially. As a result, the Board of Directors of the Institute adopted new strategies to achieve the Institute goal of making significant contributions in biology and chemistry. The Institute decided to change its mode of operation and explore the possibilities of making highly leveraged investments in basic and applied biology and chemistry. To this end the decision was made to carry out a study program in several promising areas of research.”

    … agouron was started by phil’s nephew, john of course. john worked with crick on dna transcription and other bullshit…

    “I don’t mind people getting mad at Phil Abelson,” he once said about his strongly worded opinions, “but I don’t want them to get mad at Science or science.”
