Nuclear: It’s All About The Atoms | Science Trek

JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, HOST: ABOUT 20 PERCENT OF AMERICA’S ENERGY COMES FROM NUCLEAR POWER. FIND OUT HOW WE TURN ATOMS INTO ELECTRICITY. IT’S SHOCKING. (MUSIC)STUDENT 1: HEY, WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE POWER? STUDENT 2: I DON’T KNOW. JOAN, WHAT’S WITH THE POWER? JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, HOST: POWER? WELL, WE IN THE UNITED STATES GET ABOUT 20 […]

Exploring an Abandoned Power Plant – MASSIVE Turbine Hall!

In today’s episode, we’re exploring one of the most incredible structures ever built for the purpose of power generation. The Port Richmond Generating Station. The plant was built by the Philadelphia Electric Company in 1925 along the bank of the Delaware river. It’s Neoclassical architecture was meant to signal permanence, but it would only operate […]

Sneaking Inside an Abandoned Nuclear Power Plant!

right now standing in front of one of four massive abandoned nuclear reactors at this unfinished power plant construction was halted in the 80s and it set just like this ever since come with us as we take you inside and explore the depths of this monolithic structure [Music] there’s so many spiderwebs holy fuck […]

APROS® Advanced Process Simulation software for nuclear power plants

Since the beginning of the 1980s we at Fortum and the VTT Technical Research Center of Finland have been developing APROS® a comprehensive, accurate and user-friendly software product for modeling and dynamic simulation of power plant processes Using only one code you can simulate the operations of the entire power plant or specific isolated processes […]

Puerto Rico Moves Forward: Innovative Energy Solutions after Hurricane Maria

Juan Rosario: This is a moment in which we know there is going to be a paradigm shift. Science right now is on our side. Efraín O’neil-Carrillo: The centralized large power plants that Puerto Rico has, did not suffer really much damage. So, it wasn’t a problem of generating the power, it was a matter […]

World’s Largest Batteries – (Pumped Storage)

Electricity faces a fundamental problem that comes with pretty much any product that’s provided on-demand: our ability to generate large amounts of it doesn’t match up that closely with when we need it. Wind and solar power are becoming more cost effective, but they’ll always be unreliable and intermittent sources of energy. Retailers use warehouses […]

Finding The Holy Grail of Energy

When we talk about nuclear energy we usually think about fission or splitting the atom. But there is another type, one that turned out to be much more elusive. I give the command! Fusion! It may seem like magic. One kilogram of fusion fuel would generate as much power as 10 million kilograms of coal. […]

Computer Animation of the Shaft Power Plant: a new concept for ecological hydropower

Peter Rutschmann and Albert Sepp of TUM have developed a new type of hydroelectric power plant. It is structrually compact, relatively cost efficient and environmentally friendly. A pilot plant will now be built in Bavaria. Standardized robust components are suitable for mass production which could reduce power plant costs in the future. The turbine and […]

Set Off Loud Alarms at Abandoned Power Plant

Hey everyone, so today’s video is not going to be a regular video.. Uhm, what you’re actually about to see is a failed exploration and we were originally going to put this on the second channel But we both later decided on this was just too entertaining to not go up on the main channel […]

Big Lures Catch Big Fish! Fishing a Nuclear Power Plant

Are you ready? [Erin:] Yeah, I’m ready. *wind blowing* Ha, ha, ha! [Tommy:] It’s nice and heated in there. [Pete:] Well, you’re not going to have wind in here, but but the heater–it was warm in here, my heater– I just cycled it back out, see–hopefully, it clears up. I don’t use it, but I […]
