The article presents a discussion of atomic power as a source of energy for the electric-power industry which is projected to double in size every ten years. It reveals that with continuous development, there is severe pressure to develop an alternative source of energy. Atomic power is reportedly used in the U.S. to convert water into steam to operate electric-power turbines. A bill proposed by Senaytor Albert Gore of Tennessee wants to construct large power reactors with work to be done by universities and industry under Government contract.
