A public awareness site about the dark history and proliferation of nuclear weapons and energy. Intended for mainstream broadband audiences, the site's rich enough in content and details to appeal to students and experts.

Containing a six-part narrative that begins by exploring the origins of atomic physics, the site examines the Manhattan project during WWII, the nuclear arms race, the civil nuclear industry, nuclear waste, nuclear technology black markets and finally nuclear terrorism. It also explores key aspects of the geopolitical events that influenced the proliferation of the atom. In addition, it includes some good historical film and video clips and mirrors recent news from the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI). It also provides a select list of links to other important atomic history and nuclear watchdog sites.

The site uses a primary main navigation scheme with sub menus that organizes the history of the subject in chronological order. It also features sidebar captions of important historical events within each set of modules that include jump links to anchors into deeper sections of the site. It provides interested visitors with a wide range of navigation options. Unlike other sites devoted to this subject, Atom Days allows visitors to navigate through the entire history of the nuclear age in chronological order, making it a valuable tool for cross-referencing historical events. The site can also be browsed as a condensed slideshow presentation that includes hundreds of restored public domain photographs.

• Originally intended as a documentary mini-series for cable television audiences, the project could not obtain sufficient financial backing to be produced independently. In September of 2008, the research was repurposed for this public awareness site.

• Developed on a shoestring on a five-year-old G5, with help from a team of pros who believed in the project, the site was built from scratch with Adobe Dreamweaver and Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and Bridge, to organize all the content).

• There are six e-book style narrative content modules in the site and six SlideShowPro modules with detailed captions of public domain photos.
