ABSTRACT
The article reports on the emergence industrial applications of nuclear energy in the U.S. The stakes are high in the nuclear power industry. No fortunes have been made, but fortunes have been invested. In 1959, the Atomic Energy Commission reported the costs for civilian power reactors had been two-thirds of a billion dollar, including government and private funds during the past 10 years since the nineteen-sixties. No current estimate is at hand, but the decade just closed has been no cheaper than the one before.
