Our Peaceful, Murderous Atom

Think the various atomic/nuclear agencies worldwide will be honoring, praising and saluting The Fukushima 50 for the rest of their numbered days and beyond? They're gonna give 'em a hero's send off and keep their names and legacy alive in the annals of nuclear history long after they've departed this mortal coil for single handily sparing the world an unimaginable nuclear disaster, right? Right???

Bet the house their sorry asses will never again be mentioned, invoked or acknowledged by anyone even remotely related to nuclear power in order to put as much distance between their inevitably shortened lives and an industry that can kill you now, or decades later- and create enough deadly by products to keep killing for century upon century to come...

As one of the AEC scientists says in the film: *
"We discovered that our theoretical calculations didn't have a strong correlation with reality. But we just couldn't admit to the public that all these safety systems we told you about might not do any good"
