RE: Perception of nuclear power and nuclear fusion in the US

in STEMGeeks4 months ago

While I'm not sold on cold fusion, I really hope we achieve practical hot fusion. Don't even have to worry about meltdowns. I like fission too, fission is becoming alot more modular with those smaller power plants that can be expanded when necessary. I'm sure there are some articles out there on those. I like finding people who support nuclear power as a method of getting off of the fossil fuel train.



Fusion is safer than fision because in a situation when the reactor is physically destroyed the material involved is dispersed and the reaction stops.
