Who Invented Nuclear Power

Nuclear Power! this term has become my favorite as every tv sci-fi, military or war kind of series use this term very often where the president is going to launch the nuclear weapons but does not due to blah blah! reasons.

So who invented it for the first time-

Enrico Fermi

 

Why he did this?

Because he wanted to give future tv series a story where they are going to the destroy the whole world because of whatever reasons with their top nuclear weapons and going to start a new life on earth. Nahh!

A clean energy resource. Nuclear energy originates from the splitting of uranium atoms – a process called fission. This generates heat to produce steam, which is used by a turbine generator to generate electricity. Because nuclear power plants do not burn fuel, they do not produce greenhouse gas emissions. good! less global warming, lesser acid rains.

Nuclear power was first used for electricity generation in the 1950s. – The world’s first nuclear power plant for commercial electricity generation, Calder Hall in Sellafield, Great Britain, was completed in 1956 and produced electricity as well as plutonium for defence purposes.

Conclusion

The nuclear power is not just to destroy the world! but it would only take 10 to 100 “super nukes” to destroy the world. Uranium is tough to find! which is the key source of nuclear energy.
