Atomic Power at Shippingport is a fascinating short documentary about the world’s first large scale nuclear power facility dedicated to peaceful applications. Not only is the film an example of peacetime nuclear power, but a detailed look at the technological and scientific details of nuclear reactors. A walk through documentation of actual 1950’s large scale power plant equipment is interspersed amongst scientists hard at work. This well assembled collection amounts to a fantastic piece of scientific and technological history. Atomic Power at Shippingport is a wonderful historic educational resource and just plain interesting.
