Canada's Atom Goes to Work

Top of page

Canada, rich in uranium, is harnessing atomic science for peacetime living. This film provides a progress report on nuclear research conducted at the atomic energy plant at Chalk River, Ontario, and shows some of the constructive applications of atomic energy carried out in hospitals (including Canada's celebrated "cobalt bomb"), in agricultural experimental stations and in industry. Interior views of the Chalk River plant afford a look at NRX, the atomic pile itself. A brief survey is made of atomic research in Canadian universities.
