Science Sunday – 3 Reasons Why Nuclear Energy Is Awesome!

In the final part in our Nuclear series we take a look at all the good this power source can do. This video tells us loud and proud nuclear power is awesome!

From cleaner energy to powerful generators. There really did seem a time where this type of energy seemed it would solve all our problems. Could the same be said again? Could nuclear power be the power of the future or should it be banished to the past and never be used again?

Science Sunday – 3 Reasons Why Nuclear Energy Is Terrible!

Following on from last we we thought we would take a look at why Nuclear power is TERRIBLE. When Nuclear power first came about people thought that it was going to be the solution to so many problems. They even used to paint clock faces with nuclear material so they would glow in the dark. This obviously caused some problems.

This energy source does have many of these problems. From cancer causing nastys to the major problem of what to do with leftover materials.

Next week we will look at the other side of this argument.

Science Sunday – Nuclear Energy Explained: How does it work?

Have you ever been in an argument about nuclear power? We’re not sure that we have but it is an interesting subject to look at. Nuclear power has changed the world around us in a number of enormous ways. But, as interesting as it is that’s not to say it’s not controversial. With one side of the argument saying it’s a viable cleaner alternative to coal. The other side tells us about radioactive waste adds to the damage we do to the planet (with no mention of superpowers).

But how does Nuclear Energy actually work?

That is the simple aim of this video to make things a little bit clearer. When 10% of all our electricity (and 0% of super powers) comes from this type of energy it’s good to know at least a little bit about how it functions.

So from Light water reactors to Uranium 235 you’re bound to learn something new
