For me this book was annoying. It is a "green nuclear" book that argues that nuclear power is necessary to save the world from global warming.

The author does this by taking tours with a nuclear scientist through the whole nuclear cycle from mine to power plant to waste storage repository.4/5.

Nuclear energy is powerful and dangerous. It can be terribly destructive, but we have developed ways to harness its technology for other purposes, such as providing a power source and a way to diagnose and battle disease.

Take a close look at the origins and implications of nuclear energy. Although advanced technologies are the cornerstone of modern life, few people understand how such technologies as robotics or nuclear science actually work.

Fewer still realize how--and how dramatically--technology influences our society and culture. Nuclear Technology, the newest volume in the Sourcebooks in Modern Technology Series, is a reference guide that provides non-specialists with the Reviews: 1.

Having delivered a delightfully astute history of atomic power in Atomic Awakening (), nuclear engineer Mahaffey goes over the same ground with the same combination of expertise and wit, this time describing what happens when things go wrong.

On Maan earthquake large enough to knock the earth from its axis sent a massive tsunami speeding toward the Japanese coast and the aging and vulnerable Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power reactors.

Over the following weeks, the world watched in horror as a natural disaster became a man-made catastrophe: fail-safes failed, cooling systems shut down, nuclear rods melted. All of these posited origin moments hover around the physical reality of nuclear fission and hence nuclear bombs, but we could take a softer beginning, rolling as far back as the publication of the book that coined the term “atomic bomb”: The World Set Free by H.G.
