Nuclear reactions in formula and particulate diagram forms (from UC Davis ChemWiki)

Nuclear decay reactions occur spontaneously under all conditions and produce more stable daughter nuclei, whereas nuclear transmutation reactions are induced and form a product nucleus that is more …

A star is a massive ball of plasma (very hot gas) held together by gravity. It radiates energy because of the nuclear reactions inside it. A constellation is a group of stars, usually in a recognizable shape or pattern. Together, the stars look like a picture  This downloadable study guide is an excellent way for students to learn more about stars and constellations and use the games and quiz to practice their knowledge.

What Is a Nuclear Meltdown?

A nuclear meltdown is an informal term for a severe nuclear reactor accident that results in core damage from overheating. The term is not officially defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency or by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Nuclear Fission

Nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts (lighter nuclei).

#OnThisDay Today we celebrate the 154th birth anniversary of #NobelPrize winning German physicist Wilhelm Wien who developed the Wiens displacement law of the black body radiation. Wien is best known for his work on heat radiation which resulted in among others his laws on displacement (1893) and distribution (1896) and earned him the 1911 Nobel Prize in Physics. Wien also made contributions to the study of cathode rays (electron beams) X-rays and canal rays (positively charged atomic…

Cold fusion might not be that far away. Clean energy for all will be a global game changer

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.

Nuclear reactions

Neutron-Induced Nuclear Fission: Collision of a relatively slow-moving neutron with a fissile nucleus can split it into two smaller nuclei with the same or different masses. Neutrons are also released in the process, along with a great deal of energy.
