    In 1948 the Argonne National Lab announced plans to use nuclear power  to generate electricty. In 1955, BORAX-III became the first nuclear power plant to provide an entire city with power. After that, nuclear power plants spread all over the world, the US having 100 plants by 1980 all on its own. However, after the Three Mile Island incident in 1979, the US hasn’t commisioned any new nuclear power plants. Still, relatively a third of all electric power in the world is generated through nuclear power
