Q1. Why is nuclear power awesome?
Ans. The energy that binds together an atomic nucleus is enormous, even though the nucleus itself is so small. In fact, as Einstein showed in 1905 with hid theory of Special Relativity, the particles of the nucleus can also be regarded as pure energy. This enables nuclear power stations to generate huge amounts of power with just a few tones of nuclear fuel. It also gives nuclear bombs a massive and terrifying destructive power.
