...Nuclear We cannot deny the fact that man needs energy, whether it be heat energy, light energy, and in these modern times, electrical energy. It was this need for energy that pushed man to look for resources. Before the 20th century, fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas were the only resources used to provide energy. When Enrico Fermi developed the first nuclear reactor in 1942 (Nuclear Energy retrieved from library.thinkquest.org/3471/nuclear_energy.html), it paved the way to Nuclear Age. Many countries resorted to using nuclear energy because of these reasons: One, it is more economical as it uses less...

The splitting for the first time of an atom to release nuclear energy ushered a new regime of economic, political and social debate of the humankind history. This discovery brought with it the chance for humanity to grab the intricacies that the nuclear age came with it.

Nuclear power has been generated into motive force and electricity. In 1956, the first nuclear plant was started in England and it provided electricity in the country for forty seven years. The most commonly used material is Uranium which is radioactive and is mined in large scale in Canada, Australia, and Kazakhstan (WNA). Uranium has many isotopes and the commonly used isotope is Uranium-235. This is due to the fact that Uranium 235 is easily split...

...Nuclear energy Nuclear energy comes from the splitting of uranium atoms in a process known as fission, and it produces steam by cooling the fission chambers which is used for electricity manufacture. The process involves many steps, but the major processes are steam production and turning of the turbines to produce electric energy. Fission is basically separating an atom into two atoms and the energy produced during the separation is transformed in massive energy. The current issue of global warming has led to the popularity of nuclear energy since its mitigation is mainly focused on nuclear power. However,...
