After several decades, a new nuclear reactor has taken its first steps to be OK’d by the government . If humanity wants to have affordable energy to power our ever growing lust for technology, nuclear power must be developed. Nuclear power is a GOOD thing. It produces enormous amounts of energy and does not poison the air like fossil fuels. Such a great source of energy is not without its issues. Nuclear power plants have had meltdowns, and constantly produce nuclear waste and weapons grade Uranium. Although nuclear power is significantly safer than fossil fuels, it could however, be made even better.
