History of Nuclear War I [Phase One begins!!!]

Postby Dukasaur on Sun Jul 10, 2011 11:57 am

In 1896 Henri Becquerel first discovered radioactivity in uranium. Two year later Marie Curie proved that this phenomenon was not chemical in nature but proceeds from the structure of the atom itself. Curie and her husband Pierre went on to make numerous other discoveries in radiation physics. Marie and Pierre Curie and Henri Becquerel shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1906 for their work in radiation, and Marie was the sole recipient of another Nobel Prize, in Chemistry this time, for her discovery of two new elements along the way.
France was soon to be eclipsed by a flood of atomic research in England and Germany, but some crucial discoveries continued to be made there. In 1932 Irene Curie (Marie's daughter) and her husband Frederic Joliot were the first to artificially create radionuclides by nuclear fusion. In 1939 Francis Perrin and Lew Kowalski were the first to quantify the number of neutrons emitten in a fission reaction and prove the viability of a sustainable chain reaction.

Phase 1
40 players in 5 groups will play 8-player games on the France map. The first player eliminated in each game is out of the tournament. The remainder will go on to the next round.

Phase One games have been created and invitations sent! Good luck everyone!!!

Okay, we finally have an elimination in each game.
Players out this round:
Brett2000
giannikas
Leverpuller
General Bax
Wolfmist


Two of the five were FOG votes and the other three were NO VOTEs, so the delicate balance of the pendulum has swung! Vote is now 11-10 for SUNNY!

I suppose I should give you the benefit of the doubt and assume this is meant to be a vote for SUNNY....:-)

Edit: that makes it 12-10 for SUNNY.

After the work of Becquerel and the Curies, the leadership in atomic research passed to Ernest Rutherford. Rutherford's early work was done at McGill University in Canada with Frederick Soddy, but he soon moved to Manchester University in England. Today known as the father of atomic physics, Rutherford developed the planetary model of the atom, identified the differences between alpha, beta, and gamma particles, and discovered the proton. Rutherford was the first to observe a nuclear reaction, and his students Cockcroft and Walton were the first to create a fully artificial nuclear reaction. Other great physicists associated with Rutherford to some degree included George de Hevesy, Neils Bohr, and James Chadwick. Chadwick would go on to discover the neutron, which was the next step on the road to controlled fusion.
Phase 2
35 players in 5 groups will play 7-player games on the England map. The first player eliminated in each game is out of the tournament. The remainder will go on to the next round.

Phase Two games have been created and invitations sent out. I very much hope that everyone accepts their invites on the first try, because I will be away for a few days and unable to renew the ones that expire.

Dagdam0r, DoomYoshi, and RedRover23B missed their first invite into their Phase Two game.

Re-inviting.
