How Can Atomic Energy Be Controlled?

Lilienthal, David E.
October 1946
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;10/1/1946, Vol. 2 Issue 7/8, p14
The article reports on the methods that could help in the control of the development of atomic energy. The control of the development of atomic energy aims to utilize atomic energy only for the advancement of human welfare and not to be used for war and destruction. The Atomic Energy Commission, which is composed of 12 countries, believe that the control of the use of atomic energy would only be workable when the Great Powers and all the other nations agree to it. This would also result to an order that would insist the nations and the Great Powers to follow.
