Nuclear Energy

Let's Explore Nuclear Energy

Nuclear energy is the largest and best clean-air energy source. It has the advantage of not burning any fuel, so there are no pollutants or greenhouse gas emissions released into the air.

Nuclear energy is energy that holds together the nucleus, or center of an atom. The nucleus of an atom is made of tiny particles of protons (+ positive charge) and neutrons (no charge). The electrons (- negative charge) move around the nucleus.
