Brief history of early US nuclear regulation

Most people probably don’t know anything about the beginning of US nuclear regulation…

Understandably so — it may not exactly sound like an enthralling story.

But it would probably benefit the industry as a whole if more of its workers knew at least a little bit about its beginnings.

I just finished reading a long book about this topic. I found about nine pages within it that do a good job of summarizing the regulation industry’s main events from 1954 to 1963.

Spending 20 minutes reading those pages today would be a good use of your time. You might become the only one of your colleagues who has any understanding of the subject.

You don’t have to buy the book. It’s available online. You can read it for free within your web browser.

Click the following link, which will take you to the article I published about the book. Do a search for “nine” — that’ll take you to the paragraph that tells you what page to start at.

A look at “Controlling the Atom”

There’s a link at the bottom of the article that will show you where to find the book online.
