Meeting George Dsyon

Adrian listens to and talks (briefly) to George Dyson:

"I had a few words with George after the lecture, asking him about other forms of nuclear propulsion (he isn't so hot on them) and whether attitudes might change sufficiently in the future to allow nuclear propulsion in space (he thinks so). He also said that his father, Freeman, holds an interesting if politically-incorrect view about nuclear proliferation. Apparently Freeman thinks that if Hitler used a nuclear weapon in WW2, they would've been so stigmatised to have been abandoned by the world. Perhaps." [more, via mssv]
