Radioactivity NUCLEAR ENERGY

NUCLEAR ENERGY Fission and Nuclear energy. The fission of the atomic nucleus is a natural phenomenon that releases, at the atom scale, millions times more energy than in the other sources of energy used by mankind. Discovered in 1938, the fission of rare heavy nuclei such as uranium-235 and plutonium-239, is triggered by the capture of one neutron.

Nuclear explained U.S. Energy Information Administration

Nuclear fuel—uranium . Uranium is the fuel most widely used by nuclear plants for nuclear fission. Uranium is considered a nonrenewable energy source, even though it is a common metal found in rocks worldwide. Nuclear power plants use a certain kind of uranium, referred to as U-235, for fuel because its atoms are easily split apart.
