More of New Zealand's Nuclear History

Following up on the previous post, one concrete effort in the direction of nuclear power that neither Templeton nor the ODT seem to be aware of is that there was a small research reactor maintained by the School of Engineering at the University of Canterbury during the sixties and seventies. It was given to New Zealand as part of Eisenhower's Atoms for Peace programme which was designed to encourage the development of nuclear power internationally and was apparently a major kick start to the Indian weapons programme. But I'll have to leave that for another post.
