This book describes the environmental investigations that have been conducted with the aid of the atom since the first atomic detonation near Alamogordo, in 1945. The story is one of beginnings that point the way to a new understanding of the world.

While the focus of the study is on the TPX and alternate concepts, it also provides a history of the overall fusion energy program. With this context, the study identifies (but does not answer) some underlying questions that must be addressed.
