Although expensive to build and maintain the infrastructure required to implement, the energy output of nuclear fusion is enough to support entire cities in a sustainable fashion with minimal energy input.
Baby's First Nuclear Physics Book! This is the perfect introduction to the amazing world of the atomic nucleus. Other titles in the "Baby's First" series: Molecular Genetics, Philosophy, Neuroscience, Electrical Engineering and Nanotechnology.
A nuclear meltdown is an informal term for a severe nuclear reactor accident that results in core damage from overheating. The term is not officially defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency or by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The Higgs boson is perhaps better known by its nickname: the "God particle." Discovery of God Particle is a major breakthrough in the field of nuclea. The God Particle, I hate that name, using this is giving those religious crazies a nod.
The world’s top particle physics lab said Friday it had measured the decay time of a particle known as a Bs (B sub s) meson into two other fundamental particles called muons, which are much heavier than but similar to electrons.
Lise Meitner was an Austrian, later Swedish, physicist who worked on radioactivity and nuclear physics. Meitner was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize.
