Nuclear Reactions, Radioactivity, Fission and Fusion

hey guys its professor Dave, let’s learn about nuclear reactions the electromagnetic force is responsible for the entirety of chemical phenomena. that positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons are attracted to one another is the reason that atoms form, the reason that chemical bonds and therefore molecules form, the reason that those chemical bonds […]

Nuclear Fusion Reactor ITER: MEGAPROJECTS (Part 7)

No list of megaprojects would be complete without including the largest-ever science project. The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (or, ITER) is a collaboration between China, the European Union, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and the United States that is under construction in Southern France where researchers will attempt to see if they can, essentially, recreate […]

Space Mirrors and Other Weird Ways to Fight Climate Change

Today on Reactions: craziest ideas to combat climate change. Let’s do this. First up: massive gigantic enormous space mirrors. The Sun is constantly emitting all kinds of light — including visible, ultraviolet, and infrared— which heat up the Earth. A space mirror is designed to cast a small shade on the Earth and reduce the […]

What Exactly Happened at Chernobyl?

On April 26, 1986 the Soviet Union’s Chernobyl Power Complex nuclear reactor 4 exploded. The explosion was caused by major fundamental flaws in the reactor design on top of a total disregard for protocol by some of the higher ranking people in charge, despite some serious reservations from more junior members of the staff. But […]

Nuclear Power Plants – A Report

Good evening. I’m Kimmy Jimmel, and you’re watching The National A new powerplant has opened recently in Ontario, and its effects are not what you would expect them to be. *intro music* A nuclear powerplant, after being under development for nearly four years, Opens in Oakville, Ontario, and is estimated to serve four million people […]

We produce biogas particularly efficiently | Evonik

This is biogas refining without Evonik… … and this is biogas refining with Evonik. You might not see a difference, but our membrane technology serves as an exceptionally efficient method for biogas processing. Evonik has developed a cost- and energy-efficient process for converting crude biogas into ultrapure biomethane. And our process requires less energy and […]

Carbon Nanotubes Might Be the Secret Boost Solar Energy Has Been Looking For

Solar panels are an incredible innovation in energy tech, but they’re way less efficient than they could be, because they have a problem: heat. Specifically, waste heat, or energy that’s lost while converting the sun’s energy into electricity. But a new technology—made possible by carbon nanotubes—may be just the thing that brings solar panels into […]

China’s Nuclear Boom | China’s Future MEGAPROJECTS: Part 7

Another answer is nuclear power, which is much less controversial in China because of its prodigious demand for electricity–and the inability of its people to mount any real challenges to the government’s plans. Mainland China currently has 31 nuclear power reactors in operation, and another 24 under construction. Compare this to the United States, which […]

Energy & Electricity in Science : How Is Nuclear Energy Used Today?

Hi I’m Steve Jones and I’m going to tell you how nuclear energy is used today. Basically nuclear energy is very very expensive initially to produce and power stations and so forth are quite large and therefore the uses of nuclear energy have to be on the side of a power station in general. So […]
