1950s Atomic Age

It was suggested that we focus on the 'Atomic Age' for the climax of our animation rather than jumping to modern day as it would flow better and connect from the 40s just finishing.

A little bit of research has been done just to get us into understanding the time of the atomic age better so that we can really represent it accurately.

-Period following the detonation of the first atomic bomb. (1945)
-Followed by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan.
-Seen as first major use of nuclear technology.
-Changes in technology development.
-Ushered in more progress and modernity.
-Introduction of power plants.
-1950s atomic age brought optimism of nuclear energy making other sources of energy obsolete.
-'Age of peace'
-But also fear of possible atomic attacks.
