AtomPeace.org is an educational website that provides information on peaceful uses of the atom, with special focus on nuclear energy. It is a service of UxC, LLC (UxC), and is dedicated to advancing knowledge and critical thinking about how the atom can be a positive force for humankind. This site is directly funded by UxC with proceeds that it generates from its ongoing business. Some of the content is original to this site and some comes from already published UxC material as well as other sources.
The website is divided into six components, as follows:
About – This section provides background about the AtomPeace site and the way this site is organized.
News – An ongoing update of news stories on developments associated with the atom. These are divided into categories that can be viewed separately. This work is original to this site and is updated periodically.
Articles – This section contains shorter pieces on subjects of interest that are original to this website or come from other sources, especially cover stories from the Ux Weekly.
Chronology (Under Development) – We are in the process of combining various chronologies dealing with developments impacting the atom and are augmenting these with additional entries to develop a comprehensive chronology of the atom. We are further subdividing this chronology into various categories so that the history of specific aspects of the atom can be better traced.
Research – This section contains research and other original papers on various topics related to nuclear power, nuclear fuel, and nonproliferation. Some of these papers written by UxC authors have been previously published by other organizations but are not copywritten or are reprinted with permission. Another source is past essays that appeared in UxC Market Outlook publications. While some of these essays may be somewhat dated, they deal with issues that continue to be relevant today.
Projects – This section presents projects that we are pursuing in keeping with the goals of this website. One such project that is currently ongoing is our support of the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, Georgia. Another project that began in 2021 is support of Ukrainian atomic workers.
UxC is the leading supplier of information and analyses on the world nuclear fuel market (www.uxc.com). This service is made available through various publications issued by UxC to clients around the world as well as periodic webinars and seminars and our UxC website. The nuclear fuel market depends on prices published by UxC, which introduced the first weekly spot price for uranium in 1987 and the first daily price in 2021. In addition, UxC partnered with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in 2007 to establish the world’s first and only uranium futures contract (the UX contract). UxC price and market information is often referenced in publications such as The Wall Street Journal where UxC experts are also quoted.
In addition to this website, UxC also is a sponsor of Tellus Science Museum, a word-class museum affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute and based in Cartersville, Georgia.
