Arco, Idaho

What is the significance of the small town of Arco, Idaho?

It became the first place in the "free world" to be powered by "electrical energy developed from the atom."

There is an interesting and informative article by CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman not only on this small town, but also on the current ongoing research on using nuclear energy for power generation at Idaho National Laboratory. It includes a couple of videos as well.

1955? Good. Breeder reactor? Even better. Safe reactor? The best!
