George Dyson

George Dyson (1953-) is a science historian and the son of Freeman Dyson. He was a child at the time of Project Orion, but says he was generally aware that his father was working on spacecraft design at that time.

George Dyson's books include Project Orion: The Atomic Spaceship 1957 to 1965, and he has also written on the subject of the Internet developing sentience, and kayaks (a subject in which he has been interested, since his childhood). He himself is also the subject of a book, Kenneth Brower's The Starship and the Canoe.
