Nuclear Reactors to Power Space Exploration

Transportable very small modular nuclear fission reactors for military and other applications

New generation of nuclear reactors could consume radioactive waste as fuel -   The new 'fast' plants could provide enough low-carbon electricity to power the UK for more than 500 years

A nuclear reactor being forged

A nuclear reactor being forged in the AREVA Creusot Forge, Le Creusot, France. The factory is specialized in the manufacturing and the machining of big forged and cast parts.

Diagram of Thorium, an alternative fissionable element suitable for nuclear energy production.

This is a really well done infographic. I just want to look into how Thorium is sourced, handled, preserved and at what potential cost. Diagram of Thorium, an alternative fissionable element suitable for nuclear energy production.

This rare photo was snapped by Reuters photographer Ruben Sprich during a yearly inspection of the Muehleberg nuclear power station in Switzerland. The cosmic blue glow is a result of Cherenkov radiation, an electromagnetic radiation seen in reactors.

Caesar is like a nuclear power plant because he is a small source of energy, but with boundless amounts of power. He is also very unstable like the core of a nuclear plant.

Australia’s Open Pool Australian Lightwater (OPAL) reactor is a state-of-the-art 20 Megawatt reactor that uses low enriched uranium (LEU) fuel to achieve a range of nuclear medicine, research, scientific, industrial and production goals.

OPAL's open pool design makes it easy to see and manoeuvre items inside the reactor (from ANSTO website)

Researchers Discover A 2 Billion Year Old Nuclear Reactor In Africa

In a worker at a nuclear fuel processing plant noticed something suspicious in a routine analysis of uranium obtained from a normal mineral source from

NASA’s cold fusion tech could put a nuclear reactor in every home, car, and plane

This is the Z Machine, part of the Pulsed Power Program at the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, US. It's the most powerful and efficient laboratory radiation source on Earth.
