One interesting sidebar concerning nuclear power stations is the fact they were responsible for the move to develop a hydrogen fuel economy.

A professor Scott was among the first to start promoting the idea back in the seventies because once the nuclear power stations came online it became obvious that adjusting them for a daily cycle of peak and off peak was not practical. They realized that using the nukes to create oxygen and hydrogen during light load periods was more practical so the station would run at full power all the time producing a clean fuel during off peak hours.

Sadly the publics hysteria over breeder reactors over shadowed the fact other types of reactors produce a lot less radioactive waste.
