Formed after World War 2 to foster and control peacetime development of atomic science and technology, this governmental agency not ushered in the first nuclear era, with a still-today unmatched level of reactor development and deployment. During its initial establishment and operation, the AEC also played a key role in institutional development of ecosystem ecology and provided financial resources for ecological research to take place. The AEC was abolished in 1974 after charges that it was a "captured regulator", and eventually was split into the Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission by 1977. Since then, the US has not completed a reactor that has been proposed after that date.
