National Museum of Nuclear Science and History explores “atomic” culture
For many of us, the toys of our childhood leave indelible marks on our consciousness, affecting our long-term perceptions and attitudes about certain things. Hot Wheels may inspire a lifelong fascination with fast, flashy automobiles, while Barbies might shape ideas about beauty and self-image. For the generation who grew up during the Atomic Age—the post–World War II era from roughly the mid-1940s to the early 1960s—the toys, games, and entertainment of their childhoods might have included things like atomic pistols, atomic trains, rings with tiny amounts of radioactive elements, and comic books, puzzles, and music about nuclear weapons.
The American Nuclear Society is a professional organization for those that embrace the nuclear sciences and technologies for their vital contributions to improving people’s lives and preserving the planet. Its more than 10,000 members come from all walks of life, including engineers, doctors, students, educators, scientists, soldiers, advocates, suppliers, government employees, and others. Members of the American Nuclear Society benefit from collaboration, exchanging insights, and exploring possibilities within the realm of nuclear science and technology. Become a part of this dynamic and growing community and help us shape the future of nuclear.
