Join the American Nuclear Society, U.S. Department of Energy, and Discovery Education on a journey inside Idaho National Laboratory, the nation’s lead lab for nuclear energy research, development, demonstration and deployment.
We take you inside the core of America’s biggest nuclear power plant and trace what went wrong at Fukushima to try to figure out: when will the next meltdown happen? And what our chances are of getting cancer from it?
Today we travel to a future where humans crack fusion and can generate huge amounts of power from the most common element on Earth with nearly no waste.
CEO of TAE Technologies Michl Binderbauer believes he can bring safe and sustainable fusion power to the market in a couple short decades.
If we’re going to embrace nuclear energy, we want to understand the effects of radiation and how to handle them.
NPR science correspondent Geoff Brumfiel shares the story of Nazi Germany’s attempt to build a nuclear reactor — and how evidence of that effort was almost lost to history.
With the Iran nuclear deal in further jeopardy, we take a look at how the country’s nuclear program began with NPR’s Geoff Brumfiel.
Nuclear energy is a highly-debated topic, even among energy experts. Is nuclear fission a safe and carbon-free energy alternative to fossil fuels, or do the risks outweigh the benefits?
