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.

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.
