    Nice late night matinee takes me back to TV science programming superior to what kids are fed today! Too bad Walt didn’t last long enough to further help educate the public on nuclear energy and do the job the media won’t do! One little quibble, laced with ironies; Verne’s Nautilus wasn’t powered by nukes (kinda absurd!) nor magic but from batteries ever recharged by sodium mined from undersea coal seams! Also, the Nautilus looked like it was having a hard time floundering in the _surf_ there! :)
