Nuclear History : Nuclear Destiny
Fotofest International 2008 : Station Museum : Exhibition
Tens of thousands of nuclear weapons have been built, tested and deployed since 1945. Some 400 nuclear power reactors are currently operational. Our governments have asked us to trust their decisions about nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Yet, for decades, governments around the world have kept their decisions about nuclear weapons and energy highly secret.
Today the world faces many problems and risks from those nuclear technologies - from the possibility of accidental or intentional nuclear war, from nuclear power accidents including Fukushima, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, from nuclear waste that can be dangerous for more than 100,000 years, from nuclear weapons and fissile material (highly enriched uranium and plutonium) proliferation. Nuclear History - Nuclear Destiny offers a global perspective on the human and environmental impact of the nuclear age, and his been exhibited and published widely.
