How Physics has Been Used Throughout History to Develop "Wonder Weapons" of War
Dr. Barry Parker
Professor Emeritus of Physics
Idaho State University
This presentation will be based on my recent book; "The Physics of War: From Arrows to Atoms". It will trace how weapons based on physics were used by the early Greeks and Romans, and have been used ever since up through the atomic and hydrogen bombs. All major wars of the past and the weapons that were introduced in them will be discussed. There will be some discussion of future wars.
