1: What is Nuclear Energy? | Nuclear Energy is a type of power supply but in this case electricity which is created/made by Nuclear power plants.
2: How is Nuclear Energy made? | Nuclear Energy is made in two different ways, such as Fission and Fusion. | Nuclear Energy can come from the splitting of Uranium atoms(or any atoms) this is called Fission. | The Fission Process is used to generate heat for steam which then is used by a turbine to generate energy.
3: Nuclear Fusion is when 2 is more neutrons combine to form one causing a "Nuclear Reaction". (Which will generate nuclear energy)

5: Nuclear Power Plants
7: Nuclear Power Plants and Nuclear Energy is becoming more and more common around the world actually. Many countries have decided on using it for energy. One country being Canada in,Canada there are uranium mines, power plants and many other things associating the production of nuclear energy. One specific power plant in Canada, being the Pickering Nuclear Power Plant has and is generated/generating nuclear energy throughout Ontario.
8: Nuclear Energy Short Term/Long Term effects | When using Nuclear Energy as a power source there isn't really much of a short term effect. Mainly because once the radiation from the nuclear energy gets exposed to the environment around it will not be possible to get rid of. Some long term effects when using Nuclear Energy includes the spreading of an unstoppable radiation.
9: The radiation releasing from the Nuclear Power plants during the separation of Uranium particles will cause cancer or immediate death.
10: How will radiation affect wildlife? | If wildlife gets exposed with radiation it will get killed instantly or be close to death.The area that has been exposed with radiation might not even be able to re-grow the plants or trees and will be uninhabitable by animals again. Sometimes animals exposed to radiation with get mutated and have features that are not supposed to be...
11: The method of Nuclear Energy usage is very dangerous. When handling you must be very cautious because if incorrectly handled it can blow up areas, spread radiation, and cause DEATH.
12: Disposing! | When using Nuclear Energy there is the disposal part... Once done with the uranium it must be buried deep into the Earth,so it can't be exposed to heat.(when exposed to heat it will release a lot of radiation) When the uranium is buried the area around it can hardly be inhabitable because the lack of vegetation and animals.
13: The Japan Nuclear Meltdown | Recently in Japan they faced an earthquake so devastating it shut down the reactors of the "Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant"... Which meant the radiation was released,this nuclear meltdown killed many.
