Facts and Data about the Raw Material of the Atomic Age 2020

Uranium has been extracted from the earth since the 1930s, first in the Belgian colony of Congo, then for decades in South Africa and today in Namibia and Niger. Uranium is used for nuclear power stations, atomic bombs and projectiles that penetrate tanks. Why uranium should remain in the earth is explained on 50 pages of the URANIUM ATLAS. It is a cooperative project and is published jointly by the Nuclear Free Future Foundation, the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, Beyond Nuclear and IPPNW. The German edition was published in September 2019.
