How many people live near a nuclear power plant in the USA?

This visualizations shows the locations of all nuclear power plants in the USA and calculates the number of people that live within a selectable radius around them. You can click on the nuclear plants to get more information, e.g. the date since they are running. Published on the German news site Zeit Online. Here you find a link to the interactive version. (Two weeks ago I also made a similar version showing the nuclear power plants in Germany)
