Other Description
The future of the universe lies in the smallest piece of that universe the atom. Atomic Energy Films are designed to create an awareness of the force of atomic energy in our society. These films explore the excitement of discovery, the fulfillment of development, and the reaping of benefits from mankinds giant servant atomic energy. The subject matter ranges from the basic principles of the atom to research and development and atomic energy in the community. Because of the wide range in subject matter, this group films cannot be considered a (traditional) series. It is rather a package of 14 films of varying lengths that cover many non-related topics under the general topic of atomic energy. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
