Nuclear Energy and related

Description :

Nuclear power is the utilization of nuclear reactions that discharges nuclear energy to generate heat, which most often as possible is then used in steam turbines to produce power in a nuclear power station. The term incorporates nuclear fission, nuclear decay, and nuclear fusion. Currently, the nuclear fission of components in the actinide series of the periodic table delivers the vast majority of nuclear energy in the direct service of mankind, with nuclear decay processes, mainly in the form of geothermal energy, and radioisotope thermoelectric generators, in specialty utilizes making up the rest.
