For nuclear energy - A safe source for the future
Nuclear Energy, the process that produces energy from uranium is safe when it is understood!
The reactors simply induce and accelerate the process of nuclear decay and split the atoms of refined uranium to release the energy that binds their atomic structure (I'm sure that's close without going too in depth).
This started by firing neutrons into the uranium inside the reactor, and the chain reaction of decay that is started is controlled by neuron absorbing rods.
Once the material is no longer fissile it is stored away to decay by itself which if some of the people who are against using fission to generate power knew, is a natural process, and I heard somewhere that they now mix the waste in with some sort of ceramic so that it would be possible to hold a block in your hand and it not be dangerous.
