Nuclear power

Nuclear power generates electricity by harnessing the power of atoms and the energy stored in their chemical bonds. When atoms split, they release energy. A nuclear plant works by splitting atoms and using the energy released by them in a controlled environment. Nuclear power, however, can be controversial with the prospect of radiation leaks and other accidents.
