What is nuclear energy?
Nuclear energy can be used to create electricity.
In nuclear fission atoms are split to release the energy.
What is a Nuclear Reactor?
It's a system that controls Nuclear chain reaction.
Reactors are used for generating electricity, moving air craft and submarine.
History
The first Nuclear Reactor

Facts and Statistics about Nuclear Reactors
How do Nuclear Reactors Work?
Radioactivity in Nuclear Reactors
Chicago Pile-1
Developed in Chicago, Illinois
Was a major part of the Manhattan Project
First went critical on December 2, 1942
Going Critical?
Sounds bad, but it's not!
How They are Used
Where They are Used
Percentage of Nuclear Energy Use by Country
2:57
As of July 2015, 30 countries are harnessing power from 438 nuclear reactors.
Nuclear reactors are used to provide electricity and energy in many places around the world, with majority being light-water reactors.
There are many different types
of reactors:
Pressurized Water (PWR)
Boiling Water (BWR)
Pressurized Heavy Water (PHWR)
Advanced Gas Cooled (AGCR)
