‘Diamond-age’ of power generation as nuclear batteries developed

Since the 1940s, the UK has run many nuclear reactors, for research, military purposes and electricity generation. These reactors use uranium as fuel, housed inside of a core made of graphite blocks. This graphite core assists in the nuclear fission process, enabling a controllable chain reaction which provides a constant source of heat. This heat…
