Alvin Martin Weinberg was an American nuclear physicist and the administrator at Oak Ridge National Laboratory during and after the Manhattan Project period. As the lab's top director, he suggested to Adm. Hyman Rickover that the Nautilus submarine be powered by a pressurized water reactor, which led to the nuclear Navy and the development of commercial nuclear power plants.
Weinberg championed the promise and possibilities of nuclear energy while leading the Oak Ridge National Laboratory from an early era of weapons-building to later research into the effects of radiation on human genetics. He became an adviser to presidents and was an early leader in investigations of greenhouse gases and alternative energy sources.
