First ten years: 1953-1963
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
On April 15, 1953, the Royal assent was given to the Atomic Energy Act 1953. On January 6, 1963, the contract for the sale of uranium oxide from Rum Jungle to the Combined Development Agency had run its ten-year course. This, therefore, is an appropriate moment to cast a backward look at the origin of the Commission and the first decade of its activity.
