Blog 3: Nuclear Fission

Nuclear Fission is a reaction (or radio decay process) in which the nuclear of an atom splits into two, smaller and lighter nuclei. This process produces gamma photons, and releases extremely large amounts of energy, which we then use to make our own usable energy. The release of the heat energy can be used toContinue reading “Blog 3: Nuclear Fission” Continue reading

Nuclear Fission or Fusion?

Fusion involves the combination of nuclei between two atoms and fission is the process of splitting the nuclei of atoms. When looking at the release of energy¬†from nuclear fission versus nuclear fusion there is a clear winner: Nuclear Fusion. Through … Continue reading Continue reading
