Atoms for Peace (Sep, 1958)
Atoms for Peace
Lockheed, always in the forefront of aeronautic and scientific achievement, now extends its leadership into a significant new fieldâ€”Nuclear Energy for the World’s Work.
For eight years, Lockheed’s nuclear scientists, physicists and engineers have been working on the development of a nuclear-powered airplane. Now, these scientists are also ready to put the atom to work for industryâ€”with research and process heat reactors, food irradiation facilities and the applications of radioisotopes.
At Dawsonville, Georgia, Lockheed will begin operating the Georgia Nuclear Laboratories later this year. This new installation will provide the largest radiation effects research capability in the United States.
