Abstract: In 1965-66, electricity generated by nuclear means became cheaper in several parts of the world than electricity generated from coal. By 1975, there will be 293 nuclear power reactors, with a total capacity of 138,000 megawatts, in operation in 27 countries. This will be the climax of a long period of research and development since Enrico Fermi, in 1942, built a nuclear pile in which the first controlled nuclear chain reaction took place.
