Nuclear Energy

Nuclear power is the control of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to develop heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power can be access from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions. Presently, the massive majority of electricity from nuclear power is produced by nuclear fission of uranium and plutonium. Nuclear decay transform are used in niche applications such as radioisotope thermoelectric generators. Generating electricity from fusion power remains at the target of international research. This piece mostly deals with nuclear fission power for electricity generation.
