Joseph Rotblat was one of the most distinguished nuclear physicists and peace campaigners of the post Second World War period. His peace activities rank alongside those of Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell; he won the Nobel Peace Prize, jointly with the Pugwash movement, that he helped found. However, he made significant contributions to science, and in particular to the medical applications of accelerators, radiation and radio-nuclides. In this article his early work and influences in…

Researchers have directly detected a new form of radioactivity whereby an atomic nucleus emits two protons. How two-proton decay is opening a window onto the nuclear force is explained.
Joseph Rotblat, the Bomb and Anomalies from His Archive
TLDR
The Archive of Sir Joseph Rotblat is becoming available and papers contained therein are inconsistent with some aspects of his account, but the reasons as to how such anomalies and contradictions could occur are considered.
Joseph Rotblat and the Moral Responsibilities of the Scientist
TLDR
Professor Sir Joseph Rotblat was one of the most distinguished scientists and peace campaigners of the post second war period and his views on the moral responsibilities of the scientist are outlined.
