520    Since the 1930s, the scale of scientific endeavors has 
       grown exponentially. Machines have become larger, 
       ambitions bolder. The first particle accelerator cost less
       than one hundred dollars and could be held in its 
       creator's palm, while its descendant, the Large Hadron 
       Collider, cost ten billion dollars and is seventeen miles 
       in circumference. Scientists have invented nuclear weapons,
       put a man on the moon, and examined nature at the 
       subatomic scale-all through Big Science, the industrial-
       scale research paid for by governments and corporations 
       that have driven the great scientific projects of our 
       time. The birth of Big Science can be traced to Berkeley, 
       California, nearly nine decades ago, when a resourceful 
       young scientist with a talent for physics and an even 
       greater talent for promotion pondered his new invention 
       and declared, "I'm going to be famous!" Ernest Orlando 
       Lawrence's cyclotron would revolutionize nuclear physics, 
       but that was only the beginning of its impact. It would 
       change our understanding of the basic building blocks of 
       nature. It would help win World War II. Its influence 
       would be felt in academia and international politics. It 
       was the beginning of Big Science. This is the incredible 
       story of how one invention changed the world and of the 
       man principally responsible for it all. Michael Hiltzik 
       tells the riveting full story here for the first time.
