When I enlisted in 1971 nuclear power was seen as the path to future. By the end of the decade no new nuclear power plants were being built in the U.S. IIRC. Amazing potential with two big problems. What to do with the waste and when things go wrong the consequences are enormous.Chernobyl. (not the Hot Tub Timemachine energy dring)
HOLY SHIT. That was some scary stuff.
