as well as renewable energies (hydro, solar, geothermal, and wind, all have appropriate roles to play, but with a much smaller potential). Albert Einstein said:
" If you succeed in using the nuclear-physical findings for peaceful purposes,
it will open the way to a new paradise".

(S-8) Nuclear Power
    Note: This is a side-excursion into the basics of nuclear energy Bear in mind that even without math, this can be a fairly difficult subject and that the discussion is rather lengthy.

The ideas from section S-7 are reviewed in what follows next. The rest of the section is a qualitative discussion of all key processes involved in the practical use nuclear energy.
A Review of Nuclear Structure
The way the Sun generates its energy helps understand the way a nuclear power station does so. The two processes are however quite different. Here some facts about the way protons and neutrons combine to form nuclei, as covered in section S-7 about the Sun:
  • helium
  • Unlike gravity or electrical forces, the nuclear force is effective only at very short distances. At greater distances, the protons repel each other because they are positively charged, and charges of the same kind repel. For that reason, the protons forming the nuclei of ordinary hydrogenfor instance, in a balloon filled with hydrogendo not combine to form helium (a process which also would require some to combine with electrons and become neutrons). They cannot get close enough for the nuclear force, which attracts them to each other, to become important! Only in the core of the Sun, under extreme pressure and temperature, can such a process take place.
  • Other small nuclei can similarly combine into bigger ones and release energy, but in combining such nuclei, the amount of energy released is much smaller. The reason is that while the process

    The Energy Story is a general introduction to energy. Chapters explore renewable energy, fossil fuels, electricity, circuits and many other things.
    Chapter 13: Nuclear Energy - Fission and Fusion
    Another major form of energy is nuclear energy, the energy that is trapped inside each atom. One of the laws of the universe is that matter and energy can't be created nor destroyed. But they can be changed in form. Matter can be changed into energy. The world's most famous scientist, Albert Einstein , created the mathematical formula that explains this. It is: E m c
    This equation says: E [energy] equals m [mass] times c c stands for the velocity or the speed of light. c means c times c, or the speed of light raised to the second power or c-squared.] You can listen to Einstein's voice explaining this at: Please note that some web browser software may not show an exponent (raising something to a power, a mathematical expression) on the Internet. Normally c-squared is shown with a smaller "2" placed above and to the right of the c.
    Scientists used Einstein's famous equation as the key to unlock atomic energy and also create atomic bombs. The ancient Greeks said the smallest part of nature is an atom. But they did not know 2,000 years ago about nature's even smaller parts.

    187. Manhattan Project, "Nuclear Energy" Sculpture
    The first selfsustaining nuclear reaction, achieved 2 Dec 42 at UChicago by Enrico Fermi and his colleagues.
    Nuclear Energy
    Henry Moore, sculptor "On December 2, 1942, man achieved here the first self-sustaining chain reaction and thereby initiated the controlled release of nuclear energy." Chicago Pile No. 1 ( CP-1 ) was constructed in a makeshift laboratory under the grandstand of Stagg Field Stadium at The University of Chicago. In 1965, the site was designated a registered national historic landmark. The sculpture was dedicated in 1967 on "the 25th anniversary of the first controlled generation of nuclear power, an experiment by Enrico Fermi and his colleagues ." The sculpture, provided by the Trustees of the B.F.Ferguson Monument Fund of the Art Institute of Chicago , is on the east side of Ellis Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets ( map The sculpture "Nuclear Energy" was unveiled at 3:36 p.m. on December 2, 1967, precisely a quarter-century after scientists at the University of Chicago achieved the first controlled self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction, initiating the atomic age. The 12-foot bronze sculpture stands on the site of the University's old Stagg Field, where the experiment took place under the leadership of Enrico Fermi. To some, it suggests the shape of the human skull or the atomic mushroom cloud.
