This video from Real Engineering, a YouTube Channel, explain the many facets of the economics of Nuclear energy production and distribution. The video discusses how nuclear-powered energy production fares in comparison to natural gas-powered energy production.
Nuclear engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the application of breaking down atomic nuclei (fission) or of combining atomic nuclei (fusion), or with the application of other sub-atomic processes based on the principles of nuclear physics.
Nuclear engineering works with the applications of the breakdown or combination of atomic nuclei or other sub-atomic processes. Today, nuclear engineering finds applications in medicine and radiation sciences, apart from the usual manning processes at a nuclear reactor or power plant.
