Abelson was a remarkable scientist with a wide range of areas in which he was expert. In 1939 he and Edwin McMillan discovered the first transuranic element (Neptunium), and Abelson went on to develop a liquid thermal diffusion process which was used to enrich uranium for the first atomic bomb. During the 1950's he discovered that amino acids can survive in fossils, a finding that would greatly influence biochemists and the study of paleontology. He later became editor of Science.
