Let me start with an explanation of the famous E = mc2 thing. It says that the total energy of a body at rest is equal to the product of its rest mass m and a suitable conversion factor to transform from units of mass to units of energy. In other words, this equation says that matter and energy are convertible. This conversion actually happens! Nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into lighter nuclei often producing free neutrons and protons (in the form of gamma rays). Such splitting of an atom releases an incredible amount of heat and gamma radiation, or radiation made of high-energy photons. The two atoms that result from the fission later release beta radiation (super fast electrons) and gamma radiation of their own as well. The energy released by a single fission comes from the fact that the fission products and the neutrons, together, weigh less than the original U-235 atom. The difference in weight is converted directly to energy at a rate governed ...

Nuclear energy is a form of clean energy which is produced by nuclear fission reaction of radioactive metals such as uranium. The nuclear fission reac
Nuclear technicians work in the field of nuclear energy. Nuclear energy is produced from the splitting of atoms, a process called nuclear fission. Radioactivity is the spontaneous emission of energy and/or high-energy particles from the nuclei of atoms when they are split. In the United States, uranium-235 (U-235), found in the form of ore, is used as nuclear fuel.. The fission of U-235 releases several particles, which can then penetrate other U-235 nuclei, and so on. If this series of reactions occurs slowly, as it does in nuclear power plants, the energy emitted can be captured for a variety of uses such as providing electricity. In 2005 the United States Department of Energy reported in its Annual Energy Review that nuclear energy supplied 20 percent of Americas energy needs in the previous year. The radioactivity emitted during nuclear fission can also be an important tool in fields such as health and manufacturing. However, radioactivity can also damage human tissue. Moreover, if nuclear ...
We recognize each nuclear weapon as an instrument of brutal and unsurpassed terror, designed to kill millions of innocent men, women and children at a single stroke. We realize that even a limited nuclear war can provoke sudden extreme climate change on a global scale, crippling agricultural production and threatening the survival of all higher forms of life. We are grimly aware that a nuclear-armed world will surely destroy itself and set in motion a process that will undo four billion years of evolution. We are determined to help guide the world away from the brink of nuclear annihilation.. We recognize each nuclear reactor as a repository of the most pernicious industrial waste ever known; waste so radioactive that it spontaneously melts down if not continually cooled; waste that, when targeted by terrorists or saboteurs, or by conventional warfare, will render large portions of the earth uninhabitable for centuries; waste that contains material that can be used as a nuclear explosive at any ...
At a scientific conference on 26-28 February 1942 at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics, called by the Army Weapons Office, Heisenberg presented a lecture to Reichs officials on energy acquisition from nuclear fission.[76] The lecture, entitled "Die theoretischen Grundlagen für die Energiegewinning aus der Uranspaltung" was, as Heisenberg confessed after the Second World War in a letter to Samuel Goudsmit, "adapted to the intellectual level of a Reichs Minister".[77] Heisenberg lectured on the enormous energy potential of nuclear fission, stating that 250 million electron volts could be released through the fission of an atomic nucleus. Heisenberg stressed that pure U-235 had to be obtained to achieve a chain reaction. He explored various ways of obtaining isotope 235 U/92 in its pure from, including uranium enrichment and an alternative layered method of normal uranium and a moderator in a machine. This machine, he noted, could be used in practical ways to fuel vehicles, ships and ...
The nuclear fission is generally considered as a dangerous energy due to its contaminant risks of radioactive waste resulting from the electricity generation process. The past events occurred in Japan after the tsunami of 2011 increased the risk perception of this type of energy generation what has provoked that research on alternative ways to obtain energy have gained more importance than ever.. For years, nuclear fusion was studied as an alternative to nuclear fission because of its remarkable advantages for security and financial issues. However, today, there is not working any fusion reactor to produce continuous electrical energy of high voltage.. As a result of the Project "Fusion Power", the Professor González Díez designed a prototype of fusion reactor by inertial confinement, of total conversion of material into energy, whose fusion chamber can adapt to the type of fuel that wishes to be used, specially deuterium-tritium, deuterium- deuterium or hydrogen-hydrogen. Therefore, according ...
As Barrow and Webb note, the precise value of this constant has a significant impact on physical events: the value affects the density of solid matter, the temperatures of chemical bond dissociations, and the stability of nuclei. If the value of α were to become greater than 0.1, nuclear fusion would be impossible. Furthermore, a shift of just four percent in the value of α would yield a change in the energy levels of carbon nuclei so dramatic that its production in stars would not occur. [8] Given that α has such in importance to fundamental physical processes, there has been significant interest in studying how the value of α may have changed over time. With nuclear processes having such a strong dependence on even minute variations in α, the Gabon reactors play an important role in determining the degree to which α may have changed over a very long period of time. In 1976, Shlyakhter recognized that the operation of the Oklo reactors was dependent upon the ability of Sm-149 to undergo ...
This detailed monograph focuses on the competition between physicists in four laboratories to achieve nuclear transmutation with artificially accelerated particles. The laboratories and their leaders were John Cockcroft at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, England; Merle Tuve at the Carnegie Institution in Washington, D.C.; Ernest Lawrence at the University of California, Berkeley; and Charles Lauritsen at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. The author describes the details of the competing accelerators and specific experiments, the personalities of the scientists, and the factors that led to the British victory in 1932. The final chapters are devoted to developments that occurred in the 1930s after the success of the Cambridge team. They include artificially induced transmutations in the other laboratories, the discovery of deuterium, and finally the discovery of fission in 1938. The book includes extensive end notes and a comprehensive bibliography that ...
Thorium reactors were proposed decades ago, but dismissed due to historical and personal considerations. Today they offer several levels of increased safety.
One way that nuclear weapons release energy is by breaking atoms apart. This is called nuclear fission and is the basis for atomic bombs. Specific isotopes of uranium or plutonium are typically used in these weapons. These elements can be made to undergo nuclear fission and have a nuclear chain reaction. Another process can be used to create nuclear weapons that create even bigger explosions and release much more energy by fusing atoms together. This process is called nuclear fusion, and weapons based on this process are called hydrogen bombs or thermonuclear weapons. Specialized isotopes of hydrogen are typically used in these weapons. Nuclear weapons produce a very large amount of energy and radiation, which can kill people or animals within several kilometers. Most of the radiation is X-rays, which heats the air to produce a huge nuclear fireball. The rapid expansion of the fireball creates a dangerous shock wave that can destroy houses or buildings several kilometers away. The radiation can ...
Joe...Yes, FDR was an isolationist who switched into a war posture when something triggered that switch. But it was not saving China which had been left on its own for 5 years after Japan attacked them. The great switch over isolationism to war footing for the USA started in 1939 when word of Leo Szliards nuclear fission work came out of Germany. From that moment the Draft was reinstated, military expenditures skyrocketed, and the Defeat Germany Firstdoctrine was our goal. We were willing to contain the Japs until the Germans who were racing us to a nuclear fission bomb were bombed to rubble, and invaded by Pattons Third Army which ignored Berlin and instead was sent to drive into the part of Germany where the German atomic bomb was being developed. The Battle of the Bulge was a possible defeat for the Allies if it had set back the end of Germany until its fission Bomb could be finished added to the V-2s and the new Jets and defeat the Allies. The drive across the Pacific to defeat the ...

The nuclear fission of uranium-235 produces large quantities of intermediate mass radioisotopes. The mass distribution of these radioisotopes peaks at about mass numbers 95 and 137 , and most of them are radioactive. The most dangerous for environmental release are probably cesium and strontium because of their intermediate half-lives and propensity for reconcentration in the food chain.. When spent fuel assemblies are removed from nuclear reactors, they are transported to "swimming pool" storage facilities to dissipate the heat of decay of short-lived isotopes as well as for isolation from the environment. The long term disposal of these wastes remains a major problem. It was assumed that these wastes would be encased in glass and placed in geologic disposal sites in underground salt domes. The site at Yucca Mountain was chosen as a first site, but both technical and political problems have thus far blocked its implementation. ...
Even though I knew that the experimental results eventually validated the codes and showed that safe large reactors could be built, I recognized that there were a number of diseconomies of scale that combined to reduce the assumed economic benefits of ever larger nuclear power plants. I also realized that the focus on very large power plants pushed nuclear fission energy into a tiny niche of the overall energy market; it is never good for any product to be dependent on a single type of customer. I began my research into smaller reactors with the idea that it was possible to change the prevailing paradigm that "bigger is cheaper".. My research on the topic of scale economies has spanned the past 22 years. It has taken some unusual paths that included a three-year stint as the general manager for a small manufacturing company. The company that I managed, J&M Industries, Inc., produced a wide variety of products with a large range of quality requirements and production run volumes. We provided ...
Iodine-131 (131I) is an important radioisotope of iodine discovered by Glenn Seaborg and John Livingood in 1938 at the University of California, Berkeley. It has a radioactive decay half-life of about eight days. It is associated with nuclear energy, medical diagnostic and treatment procedures, and natural gas production. It also plays a major role as a radioactive isotope present in nuclear fission products, and was a significant contributor to the health hazards from open-air atomic bomb testing in the 1950s, and from the Chernobyl disaster, as well as being a large fraction of the contamination hazard in the first weeks in the Fukushima nuclear crisis. This is because I-131 is a major fission product of uranium and plutonium, comprising nearly 3% of the total products of fission (by weight). See fission product yield for a comparison with other radioactive fission products. I-131 is also a major fission product of uranium-233, produced from thorium. Due to its mode of beta decay, iodine-131 ...

The idea of chemical chain reactions was first suggested in 1913 by the German chemist Max Bodenstein for a situation in which two molecules react to form not just the final reaction products, but also some unstable molecules which can further react with the original substances to cause more to react.[5] The concept of a nuclear chain reaction was first hypothesized by the Hungarian scientist Leo Szilard on 12 September 1933.[6] Szilard realized that if a nuclear reaction produced neutrons or dineutrons, which then caused further nuclear reactions, the process might be self-perpetuating. Szilard proposed using mixtures of lighter known isotopes which produced neutrons in copious amounts, and also entertained the possibility of using uranium as a fuel.[7] He filed a patent for his idea of a simple nuclear reactor the following year.[8] The discovery of nuclear fission by German chemists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann in 1938,[9][10] and its theoretical explanation (and naming) by their ...
1964 Leo Szilard (11 Feb 1898; 30 May 1964 at age 66) Hungarian-American physicist who, with Enrico Fermi, designed the first nuclear reactor that sustained nuclear chain reaction (2 Dec 1942). In 1933, Szilard had left Nazi Germany for England. The same year he conceived the neutron chain reaction. Moving to N.Y. City in 1938, he conducted fission experiments at Columbia University. Aware of the danger of nuclear fission in the hands of the German government, he persuaded Albert Einstein to write to President Roosevelt, urging him to commission American development of atomic weapons. In 1943, Major General Leslie Groves, leader of the Manhattan Project designing the atomic bomb, forced Szilard to sell his atomic energy patent rights to the U.S. government. *TIS Frederik Pohl , talks about Szilards epiphany about chain reactions in Chasing Science (pg 25 ...
Why is the sun hot?, now before you jump on the comments and say "because its the sun, stupid" think about it, our sun is basically a giant nuclear reactor at the centre of our solar system but not like the ones on earth. They create energy by nuclear fission, that is they split large atoms like uranium into smaller lighter ones and in the process it releases large amount of energy. Atomic bombs also work in the same way which is why they are so destructive. The sun creates its energy by nuclear fusion, the most efficient way to … ...
As it happened, Szilards choice for the element he was thinking about turned out to be wrong. He dutifully filed a patent about his idea with the British Admiralty, which promptly stashed it away in the dark as the fanciful meanderings of an eccentric scientist. In fact nuclear fission would be discovered only six years later in Germany after a series of close misses in Italy and France. When Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman reported the unexpected breaking up of the uranium nucleus, it was Szilards vision on that wet English day that allowed him to grasp the significance of the discovery instantly and prompted him to persuade Einstein to send his famous letter to FDR. He would go on to work with Enrico Fermi on the worlds first nuclear reactor, exasperate Manhattan Project security with his contempt for compartmentalization and unsuccessfully try to get another letter to FDR - this time presciently warning that direct use of the bomb would spark an arms race - before a stroke unexpectedly cut ...
Los Angeles CA (SPX) Jan 09, 2013 - France has been held up, worldwide, as the forerunner in using nuclear fission to produce electricity. However, a third of the nations nuclear reactors will need replacing in the next decade, and p
Motivation for Learning. Driving Questions. What is the difference between fission and fusion? What type of reaction is currently used in nuclear power plants? What type of reaction is used by a star? Are all nuclear reactions dangerous?. Background Information. Isotopes of elements having atomic numbers greater than 80 are capable of undergoing fission. In nuclear fission, the nucleus splits apart generating enormous amounts of energy. When uranium 235 absorbs a neutron, fission can occur and it breaks apart to produce two smaller nuclei, several neutrons, and a great amount of energy. A chain reaction is produced as fission continues and the neutrons emitted bombard more uranium 235 nuclei. Fission is utilized in nuclear power plants and weapons.. ...
The two new atoms are called daughters. One typical daughter product is Xenon 135. Xenon is not the sister of a mythical warrior princess. Xenon is a colorless, heavy gas, that is chemically inactive. Xenon 135 is produced as a byproduct of nuclear fission in reactors and is notorious among nuclear scientist because it poisons nuclear chain reactions. Xenon 135 is very radioactive, but this also means that it has a short half life. In fact the half life of Xenon 135 is a little over 9 hours, and decays into Caesium 135. Caesium 135 is weakly radioactive. It has a half life, of 2.3 million years, and then it decays by releasing a weak beta particle, and is transformed into barium 135. Barium 135 is stable. Because other, more dangerous, isotopes of Caesium are produced in chain reactions, Caesium 135 comming out of nuclear fuel is a candidate for long term disposal ...
Beta particle is emitted when a heavy element decays with atomic number of above 82 decays. Alpha radiation reduces the ratio of protons to neutrons in the parent nucleus. A beta particle is emitted when there is too many neutrons, a neutron decays into a proton, an electron and an antineutrino. Difference between nuclear fission reaction and natural radioactive decay: The fission of a nucleus involves splitting it into two more or less equal fragments. For example uranium, in which it yields two or more lighter nuclei and a large amount of energy. If an atom of U- 235 is given sufficient energy through the absorption of one neutron, it enters an excited state and begins to oscillate. ...
1. Introduction. The need for conversion of HEU (High enriched uranium (enriched 235U more than 20%)) research reactors to LEU (Low enriched uranium (enriched 235U less than 20%)) fronts open goals to seek alternative fuel elements of high uranium density. The developing of a denser core in uranium leads to higher intensity in the neutron flux and smaller amounts of spent fuel to be stored in repositories. The U-Mo alloy has been investigated with the purpose to be nuclear material for making high-density fuel elements for research reactors of high performance. This alloy could have high density in fuel core up to around 9 gU.cm 3[1-4].. During fuel plates fabrication, the U-Mo alloy would employ the technology for the current LEU fuel geometry5-7. U-Mo alloy is very reactive in the presence of aluminum in thermal cycling process. The reaction products are undesirable because they generate a low conductivity interaction layer (IL) by nuclear fission, leading to potential structural failure3,8,9. ...
For years, the government has denied that depleted uranium (DU), a radioactive toxic waste left over from nuclear fission and added to munitions used in the Persian Gulf and Iraq wars, poisoned Iraqi civilians and veterans.. But a little-known 1993 Defense Department document written by then-Brigadier Gen. Eric Shinseki, now the secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), shows that the Pentagon was concerned about DU contamination and the agency had ordered medical testing on all personnel that were exposed to the toxic substance.. Shinsekis memo, under the subject line, Review of Draft to Congress - Health and Environmental Consequences of Depleted Uranium in the U.S. Army -- Action Memorandum, makes some small revisions to the details of these three orders from the DoD:. 1. Provide adequate training for personnel who may come in contact with DU contaminated equipment.. 2. Complete medical testing of all personnel exposed to DU in the Persian Gulf War.. 3. Develop a plan for DU ...
SL,. Heres the explanation I got back in the days regarding you know what:. Since nuclear fission is possible, due to an assymetrie between the strong-force and the electro/weak-force (for short distances the strong force is stronger for longer distances electro/weak is stronger and for very large distances gravity even exeeed electro/weak). Fission works in that way that Neutrons and Protons in a nucleus are rumbled in a way that their distance overcomes the critical distance where electro/weak- exceeds strong-force thus the repelling electroweak force will tear the nucleus apart.. Such an effect is also thinkable for Protons instead of the Nucleus, and Quarks instead of the Protons and Neutrons, since also strong-force holds the quarks together and since the quarks are also charged particles where 2 of them have the same charge there is also a repelling electro/weak-force trying to tear the Proton apart (for the Neutron it even works but also without chainreaction). There are only 2 facts ...
Radiation is measured in two units - rads and rems. A rad stands for radiation absorbed dose and measures the amount of energy that is actually absorbed per unit mass. A rem stands for roentgen equivalent man and is a unit that measures the absorbed dose in human tissue and relates it to the effective damage done to your tissue. It is significant because not all radiation has the same biological effect. The radioactivity of a source is usually measured in how many rads or rems you would receive per hour; a geiger counter normally measures radiation in millirems per hour (mr/hr).. X-rays have the same characteristics as gamma ways, but they are produced differently. In 1895, Wilhelm Roentgen observed that when high-speed electrons hit metals, the electrons stopped and released an electromagnetic wave. He named this energy wave an x ray.. Neutrons are released during the nuclear fission process and during certain nuclear reactions. Neutrons trigger the nuclear chain reaction. Neutrons do not ...
Theres been an ever increasing number of reports about mysterious radioactive spikes observed across Europe. However, no official announcement has been made by any of the EU states, as officials are trying to downplay these reports as if they were mere allegations.. As its been noted by the Independent, Iodine-131 is a man-made radioactive material that is being found in small amounts across the continent. It was found in northern Norway early in January, but has been gradually moving across the rest of Europe ever since.. This radionuclide is among the main elements produced during nuclear fission, when uranium or plutonium is used as a fuel. High concentration levels of this radioisotope of iodine have been registered during nuclear tests and after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.. According to Superstation95, lately the concentration of Iodine-131 in the air over Nordic countries has been 4 times higher than normal. Traces of this radionuclide were found in Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, ...
Fundamental studies into photovoltaic materials, namely copper indium gallium diselenide, have been undertaken at Salford since the 1970s (e.g. for solar energy applications). A particular research focus is the development of new hydrogen storage materials (for mobile applications). Related work includes: studies of fuel transport systems, magnetic phase transitions induced by hydrogen, and hydrogen-bonded systems (Raman spectroscopy, x-ray crystallography and nonlinear optics). Various environmentally-friendly technologies, applications and fuels are developed, and a range of nuclear fission and fusion energy materials are investigated - a current project is part of a national effort to understand the effects of neutron irradiation on nuclear graphites. Our contribution involves the use of coherent inelastic neutron scattering to investigate the dynamics of radiation-induced defects. ...
As to the situation of the plant, 70% of the fuel in Unit 1 have melted. I havent looked at the most recent data, but the reactor pressure is increasing, the radiation dose inside the containment vessel is increasing, and iodine-131 is not decreasing. It has started to decrease a bit recently, though. All this means is there definitely has been re-criticality until recently. Because, as you know, the half life of iodine-131 is only 8 days. And yet, after more than a month from the accident, we still see an increase in the level of iodine-131. That itself proves there has been re-criticality, because otherwise iodine shouldnt have been produced. A neutron hits the atom of uranium-235, the atom splits, and iodine-131 is produced. Thats how the nuclear fission occurs. And through the mechanism that can be explained by Einsteins theory of relativity, heat is produced. The heat boils water to create steam, and the steam spins the turbin. The turbines are connected in series and drive the ...
The Nuclear Chemistry Team engages in advanced studies of nuclear fission, neutron capture, and nuclear isomers, along with the development of radiochemical diagnostics for inertial confined fusion.
Brought down to earth, nuclear fusion - a process fuelled primarily by lithium and deuterium (an isotope of hydrogen), both of which are plentiful in seawater and in the earths crust -could provide a major source of low-carbon energy. A fusion power station would use only around 450kg of fuel annually, cause no atmospheric pollution, and carry no risk of accidents that could lead to radioactive contamination of the environment.. But, while the fusion process has produced some energy (16 million watts of it, to be specific), scientists have yet to create a self-sustaining fusion burn. Indeed, unlike nuclear fission, which went from the laboratory to the power grid within two decades, fusion has proved a tough nut to crack.. The problem is that fusion involves joining two positively charged nuclei - and, as basic science shows, same-sign charges repel each other. Only at extremely high temperatures - over 100 million degrees Celsius, or almost 10 times hotter than the sun - do the nuclei move ...
by Peggy Olive. In an ideal world, inexpensive, reliable, and safe sources of green energy would abound, and we could avoid using energy derived from either nuclear fission or coal burning. But were not there yet, and with climate change already affecting life on our planet, most of us believe that we need to move quickly to using clean energy sources to limit the rise in global temperature caused by greenhouse gas emissions.. In a talk on energy and climate entitled, "Innovating to Zero", Microsofts Bill Gates gives a compelling argument for why we need nuclear power in an age of increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 [1]. Using a simple equation, he argues that CO2 is a product of the number of people on the planet, the services delivered per person, the energy needed per service, and the amount of CO2 produced by each unit of energy. The first two are heading up and are unlikely to be stopped. The cost of energy is decreasing, but not enough. So that leaves the fourth factor. We must use ...

When I use the phrase ionic bombardment, I mean a beam of charged atoms impinging on a surface. This will result in defects in the material, and the modification of materials by ion beams is as very large area of research for materials scientists.

Niels Bohr was a Danish physicist who made tremendous contributions to his field, transforming accepted notions of atomic structure, helping to develop nuclear fission, and advocating for international cooperation in crafting responsible nuclear policy. Bohr was born in Copenhagen in 1885 into a family that encouraged his academic pursuits. Christian Bohr, his father, was professor of physiology at the University of Copenhagen. Bohr credited his father for awakening his interest in physics at a young age. His mother, Ellen Adler Bohr, came from a wealthy Jewish family that was prominent in the field of education. Bohrs brother Harald was a mathematician and Olympic soccer player for the Danish national team. Bohr graduated from Gammelholm Grammar School in 1903. He then entered Copenhagen University where he earned a Masters degree in Physics in 1909 and a doctorate in 1911. His mentor there, Professor C. Christiansen, was an innovative and well-respected physicist. During graduate school, ...
They are on the inner walls of a plastic cup with some old beer.

Nuclear fission runs down naturally, but is toxic death. All nature does molecular nuclear fusion, which is safe, clean and basically free! Turning water into He and O. We lose the He to space, and breathe in the O. Plants breathe in CO2, and excrete O2. No CO2. O2 is their waste: CO2 is the gas of life![19] Plants take in CO2, and produce O2 and carbohydrates. Animals eat the carbohydrates, and recombine it with the O2 they breathe in.[20] ...
Anyone remember The Great Dempsty Dumpster Fight on the Fleet Landing in Bermuda, spring of 60 or 61? There were 10 to 15 boats in. By the time most of em pulled in, all sorts of surface craft were nested at the base pier. So, the boats dropped hardware to swing the hook out in the bay. They set up a liberty launch circuit for the lads in the liberty sections And everything looked cool. Some mental giant called for the liberty boats to quit running at 2330, so by 2300 the fleet landing was jammed solid with red-blooded American bluejackets in varying states of intoxication. A jolly crowd of drunks milling about with nothing to do but wait for the Orion coxswains to lay their boats alongside. There was a Dempsty Dumpster on the pier. Some simple sonuvabitch from SUBRON 6 climbed up on it and yelled, Im King of the Dumpstey Derby!! It was like nuclear fission - the gahdam pier went nuts..

Last week Labs test engineers pushed a model of a critical component of such safety vessels -- called a lower-head assembly -- to its limits to better understand the materials properties and structural factors at work in serious nuclear reactor accidents. Ken Reil, Manager of Nuclear Safety Testing Dept. 6423, hopes the tests will lead to improved predictive models so operators of nuclear plants would have better information if they needed to take measures to allay an accident, and designers of future plants would have the best possible safety features available.. Remarkable strength On Monday, Oct. 23, Sandia test engineers pressurized the 1/5-scale model of a lower-head assembly (the inverted steel dome that would hold the damaged fuel during a partial or full core meltdown) to about 770 psi, then increased the temperature until the assembly stretched like a balloon and finally burst.. During the test, which lasted about four hours, the vessels steel turned red-hot and began to deform as it ...

Nuclear Energy in Ontario is made through a process called nuclear fission. This is when atoms are split to form smaller atoms, and they release the energy that powers our cities!. Biomass is a cost-effective source of renewable energy. It costs 1/3 less than fossil fuels, while doing the exact same job!. Nuclear Energy releases comparable amounts of greenhouse gases as wind, water or biomass energy, whereas Coal releases 30x the amount of gases.. Using biomass energy contributes to a cleaner environment. Instead of garbage ending up in our rivers and oceans and ultimately harming our ecosystems, it is used to produce energy!. Ontarios air quality is improving as a result of Nuclear Energy. Our province has boosted nuclear power generation from 37% in 2000, to 62% in 2014!. Biomass is a renewable and abundant source of energy. We will always have sources of biomass, such as crops, manure and garbage, that we can productively convert to fuel.. Every 18-24 months, a nuclear power plant must shut ...
Yttrium isotopes are among the most common products of the nuclear fission of uranium in nuclear explosions and nuclear reactors. In the context of nuclear waste management, the most important isotopes of yttrium are 91Y and 90Y, with half-lives of 58.51 days and 64 hours, respectively.[27] Though 90Y has a short half-life, it exists in secular equilibrium with its long-lived parent isotope, strontium-90 (90Sr) with a half-life of 29 years.[6]. All group 3 elements have an odd atomic number, and therefore few stable isotopes.[9] Scandium has one stable isotope, and yttrium itself has only one stable isotope, 89Y, which is also the only isotope that occurs naturally. However, the lanthanide rare earths contain elements of even atomic number and many stable isotopes. Yttrium-89 is thought to be more abundant than it otherwise would be, due in part to the s-process, which allows enough time for isotopes created by other processes to decay by electron emission (neutron → proton).[26][note 1] Such ...
