ABSTRACT
The article examines several factors that contribute to a level of public uncertainty about nuclear power that exceeds the reaction usually met by a new technology. The one of the factors is the apparent suddenness with which nuclear power has come, not allowing much time for people to become accustomed to its existence. Another factor is the relationship of nuclear fission with nuclear weapons, which leads people to associate the consequences of nuclear weapons with reactor accidents. The section also offers reflections and insights given by the author relating to the public uncertainty on nuclear power.
