Don Miley has worked at the Idaho National Laboratory for more than two decades. He gives tours of the Experimental Breeder Reactor I, the world's first nuclear power plant, built in the Idaho desert in 1949 by a team of researchers.

In this talk, we explore the early 1950s unbridled enthusiasm for nuclear-powered trains, planes, cars and vacuum cleaners. From the romantic appeal of nuclear energy in the 1950s to the hyper criticism of it in the 1980s, nuclear power and its history have seemingly always been based on emotions rather than facts.

During that time he's seen a shift in the perception of nuclear energy.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
