Alan Waltar, nuclear engineer, Past President of the American Nuclear Society: The majority of our citizens are aware of the contributions of nuclear technology to the production of electricity via commercial nuclear power plants.

Medicine, agriculture, and modern industry have been substantially improved by the harnessing of radioisotopes.
Alan Waltar, nuclear engineer, Past President of the American Nuclear Society: Nothing is more vital to the advancement of human civilization than the abundance of usable and affordable energy. It underpins national security, economic prosperity, and global stability.
