It could provide clean, cheap, inexhaustible power to the world. So why haven't we figured it out yet?

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.

Hidden Truth Behind Discovery of God Particle – Detailed Case Study [Infographic]

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.

What Is a Nuclear Meltdown?

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 magnetic moment of an individual proton is inconceivably small, but can still be quantified. The basis for undertaking this measurement was laid over ten years ago, and physicists of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, GSI Darmstadt,...

Love these retro photos! Shirley Ann Jackson, the first Black woman to earn a doctorate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in nuclear physics.

Recently, New Scientist had an article about Emmy Noether because 2015 is the one hundredth anniversary of Noether’s Theorem. I’m not going to link to it because it’s behind a pay wall. A couple of…

Unsung? I hardly think so

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.

The fission process often produces free neutrons and photons (in the form of gamma rays which can cause cancer), and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay. In nuclear physics, nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei collide at a very high speed and join to form a new type of atomic nucleus. #Glogster #Fusion #Fission

This is an example of a technology resource called Glogster, an online collage maker. Students could separate into groups and create a glog on a specific topic, then present it to the class.
