A frightening look at how industrialists proposed to apply nuclear power to all facets of American life, Atoms for Peace is a nonstop promotion of nuclear energy that tragically stresses the harmlessness and efficiency of nuclear energy. Nuclear power was one of the fastest growing fields in the twentieth century and this film is a landmark in nuclear power history. For example, nuclear power was embraced by the oil industry by utilizing radioisotopes to save the industry nearly a half a million dollars a year through the use of atomic tracers in the oil. The film enumerates the uses of nuclear energy, which includes how particles can tell scientists about the affects of aging on car engines, the length of paper or sheet metal in a factory, and help find microscopic flaws in metals. Perhaps the biggest advancement with isotopes is in the energy sector. For example, atomic scientists tell the viewer, much more energy is stored in a small amount of uranium compared to coal. Nuclear energy can be an alternative energy form for places that currently have no electricity. It will take quite some time before nuclear energy can be a competitive form of energy in the United States. However, a promising study just took place in which test administrators shut off the electrical power in a mock city and replaced electric with nuclear power. The lights came back on. Nuclear research also has a big affect in American agriculture. Scientists are now able to study plants in all new ways. They can build stronger, better plants. Fertilizers are being tested and improved. Great strides have been made against disease. With the help of atomic energy, pharmaceuticals are developing medicines and possible cures for cancer, leukemia, and diabetes. Researchers have even found that atomic energy can shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. Atoms of Peace gives a fascinating historical sense of the perception of nuclear power and its projected uses. The advantages and disadvantages of nuclear power are not fairly weighed in this classically biased promotional video.

Atomic Energy as a Force of Good is a pro-atomic energy film is meant to educate people on the safety of nuclear power plants. Painting itself as part of quality educational videos, the film utilizes Hollywood actor Paul Kelly. Kelly plays a rancher who gets an offer from a power plant company for his land so they can build a nuclear reactor. He is against nuclear power and its possible effects on life in a small town, so he gets his neighbors to sign a petition barring the plant from their town. The town’s congressman then comes in with an atomic scientist who explains to the townsfolk why nuclear power is so safe and explains the multitudinous advantages of nuclear power and nuclear power plants. Other uses of radiation are discussed, like radiation uses in the medical field, using it to find brain tumors. The beneficial uses of nuclear radiation hits home with Kelly, whose granddaughter is dying of terminal brain cancer. Atomic Energy as a Force of Good is a brilliantly revealing melodrama from an age in American history where people were scared of new and intimidating technology. The lengths that large corporations were willing to go to reassure them is well documented in this great film.

This 1964 film by the Department of Defense’s Office of Civil Defense was an attempt to outline the effects of a nuclear blast on American soil using a Nevada test site in 1955, and the a more powerful nuclear weapons test in 1964. An important part of American military history, the army conducted elaborate atomic bomb tests, which required the building of power lines, transformers, and a complete substation that would imitate the damage that would be sustained on American infrastructures. In order to better gauge the effects of nuclear radiation, five different kinds of furnished houses were also built, and dummies wearing civilian clothes were set up in the test area. At one point, reporter Joan Collins observes that after the blast, the clothes on the test dummies have faded. Collins takes the viewer from the planning phase of the tests to the actual blast site itself, showing the audience how to minimize their own exposure in the event of an atomic attack. The film also demonstrates the differences between the 1955 and the 1964 tests. Canned food exposed during the 1955 blast was later eaten, the film claims, while in 1964, knowledge of radiation poisoning was better understood. This film contains some of the most amazing footage ever taken of nuclear blasts and effectively shows the destructive power of these weapons. The effects of the atomic bomb are staggering, and this film captures the devastating, huge explosions that are capable of mass destruction.

Produced by Encyclopedia Britannica Films, this video seeks to educate American schoolchildren on how to take cover in the event of a nuclear warning or attack. The child safety tips are dated and hilarious, consider what little help covering up is against a nuclear weapon or a nuclear explosion. Three different situations are shown, including when children are at school, at home, or at a playground. Children are shown cowering against buildings and hiding in basements. Fictional characters, Sue and Ted, are shown at home alone during an attack. The narrator even recommends that children caught outside far from home enter a random house for shelter, advising them that “strangers will understand.” The film also gives a simplified explanation of how nuclear bombs work throughout the lessons on child home safety. This is a classic Cold War era propaganda film that is light on atomic bomb facts and heavy on reassuring government rhetoric.

A is for Atom, an award winning short film, promotes the peacetime applications of atomic energy. The animated residents of Element Town illustrate nuclear fission – the process of an atom splitting that produces byproducts, including massive amounts of nuclear energy. The film is a cutesy plug for all the advantages of nuclear power while answering the question "what is an atom?" Known for its destruction in the past, atomic energy is represented as a harmless figure, which, with “man’s wisdom, on his firmness in the use of that power,” can be controlled and purposed for better things. Nuclear medicine is one of the stressed uses. Still an effective teaching resource today, A is for Atom is a clever depiction of the history of the atom that will entertain children and adults with its 1950's style presentation of what nuclear fission reactions could mean for the future of America.

Nuclear War: Atomic Explosions. Hydrogen Bombs Hiroshima: World War III. "Many of the nuclear scenes from this film, including nuclear blasts that did not appear in this film, can also be seen in the spectacular film "Trinity and Beyond" directed by Peter Kuran. We highly recommend this film." By Rhawn Joseph, Ph.D.

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=131557 --- Think about the quickest road car you've ever driven. No, wait, scratch that. Think about the quickest road car you've ever heard of. No, wait. That won't do, either. Think about the quickest road car that's ever been. That's more like it. Now you're in the right area code. Here's why: This highly modified 2005 Ariel Atom with its supercharged, 375-horsepower, 2.0-liter Honda engine hits 60 mph from a standstill in 2.8 seconds. Two-point-eight seconds! With an exclamation point! (And we never use an exclamation point.) Measure its time to 60 mph with 1 foot of rollout like they do on a drag strip, and the Ariel gets to the mark in a scant 2.6 seconds — less time than we require to decide between paper and plastic. For those of you keeping score at home, this makes this 2005 Ariel Atom quicker than any car we've ever tested — any Porsche, any Viper, any Vette and any other specialty marque like the Noble M400. But it gets better. The little Atom goes on to further embarrass the big names by punching its way through the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 128.4 mph. It's the hardest accelerating car we've ever driven.
