Happy Birthday Obninsk Nuclear Power Plant

The first nuclear power plant ever was built in Obninsk, Russia. It was the first electricity generating plant on a civilian grid. The plant operated until April 29th 2002.

The exact date of the plant’s “birth” varies, but as I understand it, it began operating on the 26th and went to large scale production on the 27th.
