Criticisms which can be focused on our thermonuclear program arise primarily from human factors and not from past or present legislative silence. Nevertheless, our atomic energy legislation can suitably attempt to maximize the opportunities for achieving thermonuclear objectives and to minimize the chances of misjudgment in administration of the law. It is the special responsibility of lawyers that the law adequately recognize and implement so important a field as thermonuclear energy, or that it fail in these respects. The following discussion approaches atomic energy legislation from the new but necessary perspective of the thermonuclear program.
