One Part in a Trillion — Science Reporter

Go back in time and take a tour of the nuclear reactor at the US Army Materials Research Agency in Watertown, MA in this Science Reporter episode from 1964. Host and science reporter John Fitch of MIT goes behind the scenes of this American reactor to better understand nuclear research. The Science Reporter TV program — produced by MIT and WGBH in the 1950s and 1960s — invited scientists and engineers to explain science and technology for a general audience.
