I believe that it is extremely important to teach nuclear science to the experts as well as to the general public. Throughout history Mankind has made continual progress. Many of the great leaps forward have been associated with highly talented and productive individuals, such as Nobel laureates, especially in the past century. Several Nobel prizes have been awarded to experts in the nuclear sciences. I believe these few individuals, rather than those many uninformed people voting on issues of nuclear technology, should be in the majority. Nuclear science has brought prosperity to Mankind. This is part of our Past and part of our Future.
There is no going back.
