Summary
Harnessing the power of the atom is a staggering technological achievement-but how is it done, exactly? This program guides viewers through the complex science and basic operation of a nuclear power station. Outlining the nuclear fuel cycle-including mining, milling, enrichment, fabrication, storage, and reprocessing-the video looks at specific mining procedures; discusses the structure and properties of uranium hexafluoride; highlights two enrichment methods (centrifuging and gas diffusion); illustrates a fission reaction; explains how a nuclear plant uses water in various capacities; and examines the challenge of decommissioning nuclear power facilities
