Help grading non-fiction book article[edit]

Hi guys! I've been working on The Return of Depression Economics and would really appreciate if someone could help me grade it. It's definitely more than a stub now :) and feedback is most welcome too --Lattecoffee (talk) 12:49, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Making_of_the_Atomic_Bomb Kindle Version page 848, design and fabrication of BePo initiator, still classified.[edit]

There are scant detail available as to the technical work around the BePO initiator and the designs remain, to this date, classified. While it's 'hear-say' I'd like to contribute a comment about this that's at least suggestive of the identity of one possible key player. In 1979 I worked at the USAF Weapons Laboratory, and had the privilege of working briefly with an 'elderly' gentleman named Walter F. Dudziak, who was, I was informed, "here from Los Alamos" (although in point of fact it appears he was visiting from somewhere in California in conjunction with some work on a project administered at Los Alamos). In the course of conversations I learned that Walter had direct experience working with nuclear weapons and their testing, which I found fascinating and when possible I asked questions of various sorts, thinking his knowledge and insight unique (in my experience). The then Director of the Computational Division of the AFWL mentioned, in a conversation about Walter "he worked in the Manhattan Project. He was the guy who figured out how to machine the beryllium sphere." To this day I've always had the impression that Walter F. Dudziak, who worked in various capacities and sites in conjunction with the U.S. early nuclear weapons program, may have had a significant, if not critical, role in the design and fabrication of this key, and highly secretive, component. Walter passed away shortly after the millenium (2007, if I recall correctly) so perhaps we'll never know. But for whatever it's worth I thought highly enough of this charming older character, his candor and wit, to pass along this comment, attributing to him an important, if concealed, contribution to that effort.
