A Radioactive Forest Fire Is Extremely Dangerous. The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, in case you have been living under a rock somewhere, is a nuclear power station near the city of Pripyat, Ukraine. It is 14.5 km northwest of the city of Chornobyl, 16 km from the Belarus–Ukraine border, and about 110 km north of […]

What Has To Happen In Order To Decommission the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. Decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant just got one step closer. Japanese researchers have mapped the distribution of boron compounds in a model control rod, paving the way for determining re-criticality risk within the reactor.

Answer to the Question of Is the Fukushima Reactor Still Leaking? There was a time when it was believed that nuclear energy was the power of the future and that nuclear fusion technology would change the world. Well, it certainly has changed not only Japans future but also world opinion of the safety and wisdom of […]

The Chernobyl disaster was a catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the town of Pripyat, in Ukraine,then part of the USSR. The corresponding explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which spread over much of the western USSR and Europe.

Making Modern Fusion Reactors More Efficient. The life of a subatomic particle can be hectic. The charged nuclei and electrons that zip around the vacuum vessels of doughnut-shaped fusion machines known as tokamaks are always in motion. But while that motion helps produce the fusion reactions that could power a new class of electricity generator, […]

The Conditions of the Sun Needed For Nuclear Fusion. The long awaited promises from harnessing fusion energy are still just around the corner, but the corner seems to be closer than ever before. Researchers funded by the U.S. Department of Energy ( D.O.E) are working to understand what will happen when fusion reactions do not […]

Antihydrogen Research. Antimatter is material composed of antiparticles, which have the same mass as particles of ordinary matter but opposite charges, as well as other particle properties such as lepton and baryon numbers and quantum spin. Collisions between particles and antiparticles lead to the annihilation of both.
