Today there is a strong movement in the direction of developing nuclear power that is more acceptable to the general public. I have had a front seat in the development of the water-cooled reactors that are producing nearly 20% of the electrical energy being developed in the United States. I believe that these reactors are relatively safe compared to other methods of producing electricity today — in fact, they probably represent the safest method of producing electricity. However, that is not the topic of my essay, which is devoted to new developments in the production of nuclear electric power.
