Books Info:

Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens free pdf As a young man Frank Oppenheimer followed in his famous brother's footsteps--growing up in a privileged Manhattan household, becoming a physicist, working on the atomic bomb. Tragically, Frank and Robert both had their careers destroyed by the Red Scare. But their paths diverged. While Robert died an almost ruined man, Frank came into his own, emerging from ten years of exile on a Colorado ranch to create not just a multimillion dollar institution but also a revolution that was felt all over the world. His Exploratorium was a "museum of human awareness" that combined art and science while it encouraged play, experimentation, and a sense of joy and wonder- its success inspired a transformation in museums around the globe. In many ways it was Frank's answer to the atom bomb. K. C. Cole--a friend and colleague of Frank's for many years--has drawn from letters, documents, and extensive interviews to write a very personal story of the man whose irrepressible spirit would inspire so many.
