    In the 1950s, most people were only familiar with the incredible destructive power that nuclear energy had brought to the world at the end of World War II. The government, however, thought that there were ways that the power of the atom could be used to help the American people in peacetime. To make people feel comfortable with the awesome power of fission, the government started putting together some of the best propaganda films ever developed. If you are a student of history, energy or propaganda you need to watch this today!

    For decades, power generation had been a hugely expensive and often unreliable proposition. In the 1950s, however, scientists started suspecting that nuclear power could be used to reliably create an almost limitless amount of electricity to keep the lights on all over America!

    In order to dramatize the fact that power and peace were not the only uses of atomic energy, this movie also includes footage of an actual atomic bomb test. It is a wonderful contrast to the positive spin that all of the other films on this series put on the potential of the atom! You will be riveted to your seat!

    At the time of these films even the government did not truly understand the dangers that nuclear bombs could pose for the long-term health of the planet. Included is a film showing government plans to set off nuclear bombs for large-scale construction projects like building a new Panama Canal! You will be shocked at some of the ways science thought nuclear energy could be used!
