This is important — the Day of nuclear industry worker
For today in territory of the Russian Federation in action there are 10 nuclear power plants. An important source of energy, which produce nuclear power plants, daily comes to our homes, businesses and industry, helping to make life easier and better. The importance of the work of nuclear scientists is undeniable, that is why the Day of nuclear industry worker launched a separate occasion.
The beginning of the nuclear industry
The development of this industry began in 1942 when a Committee of defense of the Soviet Union was prepared and approved by the order of organization of works on uranium.
We cannot ignore that the nuclear industry is the most important object of application of forces in the modern world. This is not only a key region in the Russian economy, but, in fact, guarantee the energy security of our vast country. That is why the holiday is observed earlier with all the other energy drinks on December 22, was assigned its own date — 28 September (the Day of nuclear industry worker). The decree of 3 June 2005 was signed by President Vladimir Putin.
However, few people know that the development of the nuclear industry began not with peaceful intentions — initially, nuclear energy was introduced as one of the most powerful weapons on Earth. It was then, in the race for his creation was contested by three mighty powers — Germany, USA and Russia.
Day of nuclear industry worker
Why is it this industry and all its workers, got so much attention?
To do this, just imagine what could happen in the 30-40-ies of the last century, if Germany managed to succeed in creating nuclear weapons before the end of the Second world war. But the United States showed an obvious efficiency in nuclear development, which this time became a real race between Russian and American scientists who, no matter what, trying to obtain new results.
've had our researchers, as rolled by the many political differences of the new development allowed the Americans to break far ahead. But despite this, Soviet scientists were able to catch up and overtake the Americans. So the Day of nuclear industry worker — a date that is highlighted in the history of the special line.
What were the achievements of nuclear scientists?
The undeniable merit of the Soviet nuclear industry was that, despite all sorts of obstacles, they managed not only not to stand still but to move forward by leaps and bounds. The development is not affected and the emergency shortage of uranium, of which there were plenty in the USA (deposits in Central Africa and brought to Americans as much uranium as needed for even the most seemingly worthless test). Thanks to the hard work of our nuclear scientists, the assumptions of Americans about when the Russians will be able to create the first atomic bomb, is not justified — Soviet designers built the gun for exactly a year faster than projected by them.
To realize the significance of what has been done to our scholars, we should be clear picture that existed at that time: the country destroyed by war, huge losses among scientists, lack of funding and whatnot. That is why the Day of nuclear industry worker in Russia is not just a date.
Nuclear scientists — People with a capital letter
So, what does it mean for Russians, the Day of nuclear industry worker? First, it is a tribute to those people who, overcoming the difficulties of life, did not spare himself in order to harsh conditions to give maximum strength for others. It is no secret how harmful the radiation acting on the human body for years, even in the smallest and acceptable norms.
And what about the times when it was just beginning were studied and, of course, the level of protection from radiation, the Soviet scientists were not as reliable as today. And if you remember Chernobyl? The tragedy that completely changed the world of nuclear energy, later restored literally "from the ashes". It's safe to say that nuclear scientists — People with a capital letter, which in many cases deliberately expose your health at risk for the sake of others.
This day is a special date
Today the Russian Federation has firmly cemented its status as the largest nuclear powers. Our scientists were able to make nuclear weapons, after creating a new — peaceful — atom, whereby in the homes of Russians is constantly supplied with such vital energy. So congratulations on the Day of nuclear industry worker is always filled with warmth and the most sincere words of gratitude.
The feast reminded of the story of the development of the mentioned sectors, the people who helped create what is still in the beginning of the last century, it seemed quite impossible achievements, thanks to which today we do not live in constant fear of possible bombing by the United States, and as a direct and threatening competitor. Day of nuclear industry worker — this is a special date.
Let the peaceful atom!
Today, nuclear energy allotted great attention to the youth willingly go in this industry, not only maintaining the established high level of performance, but constantly making innovative projects. About how important and difficult the work of nuclear scientists, in fact only know close to the of the profession people.
For the rest of the Day of nuclear industry worker is a holiday of those who were able to tame the unruly power of nuclear energy. I wish the nuclear industry on their professional day? Of course, first and foremost, health. Then, strength and patience. And, of course, kindness and love. But every employee of this industry, in turn, wants atom always remained peaceful, without bringing into the house the grief and pain of war or the Chernobyl disaster.
