Main purpose of this project is to help the public to learn some interesting and important information about the energy and about the nuclear energy. We realize that the basics in the nuclear physics do not belong to fundamental human knowledge and the term “nuclear” often evokes a feeling of something negative or even dangerous. We do not claim this or that opinion is the only opinion that is right. But it is noteworthy, that the vast majority of nuclear engineers, people who know what nuclear means, do not connect the term “nuclear” with anything negative or dangerous.
Anyone can be able to come here, learn the basics of nuclear and reactor physics and should be able to answer basic questions. The best way to promote nuclear power is to present the facts.
Would you like to:
- learn something new?
- know how does the nuclear power plant works?
- know how does the nuclear reactor starts?
Follow us, we can answer many of your questions!
