Nuclear reactor

As Duke Energy preps renewal requests for its reactors, it's unclear how the leading candidates would rule on a major issue in carbon-free power.
The Kremlin won’t say much about a blast at a secretive Russian nuclear reactor.
Indian Point's Unit 2 reactor is 42 years old and showing its age. Its operating license expired in 2013. Immediately next
In both Chernobyl and Fukushima, before disaster began to unfold, few imagined that such a catastrophe was possible. In the United States, too, despite the knowledge since 1945 that nuclear power, at war or in peacetime, holds dangers of a stunning sort, the general attitude remains: it can't happen here.
Shabbar is a mild-mannered young man of immense talents. As a student of Physics at Reed College, Portland, Oregon he became an ardent student of the science behind nuclear reactors.
On March 11, 2011, Japan experienced a 9.0 earthquake. The six nuclear plants at Fukushima Daiichi survived the quake but were swamped by a 45-foot wave that overwhelmed the 19-foot seawalls. In the ensuing three years, we learned four grim truths.
According to international regulations and treaty obligations, Iran has a right to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes. This right must actually be explicitly recognized, which means Iran would be able to enrich uranium up to 5 percent.
What do you think about Kodak housing a nuclear reactor in a building's basement? Do you think they should have let more
He isn't the only one worried about the safety of nuclear power in the event of a disaster. A coalition of nine environmental
Rep. Scott Tipton said last week that Japan's Fukushima nuclear reactors "held up reasonably well" after being struck by an earthquake and tsunami. So they could have been flattened, yes. But did they really hold up reasonably well?
I was aware of many of the modern mind-boggling theories of physics, ranging from parallel universes to relativity and string theory. But I also became especially intrigued about discoveries that date back many centuries.
The official said the breakdown of the cooling systems would not lead to a rapid rise in temperatures at the reactor and
The nuclear crisis in Japan is a terrifying reminder of all that can go wrong at a nuclear power plant. The United States must move away from this inherently dangerous technology and towards safer energy sources.
As we decide our energy future, we must decide if we are willing to have a situation like Fukushima happen here in the United States. And if the answer to that question is no, our country has no choice but to reject nuclear power.
In one case, at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant in New York, NRC inspectors allowed a leaking water containment system
The Dai-ichi plant is the most severely affected of three nuclear complexes that were declared emergencies after suffering
Pakistan and China deepened their relationship on Monday when it emerged there were plans for a fifth Chinese-built nuclear
The 32-year-old New Yorker has just become the 38th "amateur physicist" to create nuclear fusion -- a concept that "has eluded
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates has contributed to an additional $35 million investment
Utility reactors all over the country pose grave dangers for those living nearby. There are no safe levels of exposure to the byproducts created by the generation of reactors currently in use.
