Gunderson: Nuclear Power's 70th Anniversary: Then and Now

Nuclear Power's 70th Anniversary: Then and Now

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the first man-made self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction. In this edition Gundersen and Hurley discuss this first "atomic pile", the decades of secrecy that followed, and the birth of what has become known as the "nuclear priesthood". Also in this episode we discuss nuclear subsidies, water usage, and the problem of nuclear waste. http://fairewinds.org/content/nuclear-powers-70th-anniversary-then-and-now
