Weapons Programs: Electricity Grids and Half Century

weapons programs: Bearing names like Godiva, Viper and Super Kukla, the reactors never fed electricity grids, according to The Japan Times. Instead, they produced research useful to nuclear weapons programs and eventually utilities. Those units built more than a half century ago in the U.S. and Europe generated bursts of heat within fractions of a second so that scientists could gauge nuclear reactions, sometimes with deadly consequences. Modern reactors are gigantic by comparison, able to power more than 1.5 million homes each. ; Today, the nuclear industry once again is thinking small, spurred on by politicians including U.S. President-elect Joe Biden and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Half of the world's energy goes into making heat, and that produces two-fifths of the world's carbon dioxide emissions, according to the International Energy Agency. They're looking to solve the next climate change challenge how to feed pollution-free heat to industries that make steel, cement, glass and chemicals. (news.financializer.com).
