Wildlife Is Flourishing In Fukushima’s Exclusion Zone

Wildlife is flourishing in the exclusion zone around the disabled Fukushima Daichii nuclear reactor in Japan. Researchers spotted more than 20 species in areas around the reactor, including wild boar, macaques and fox-like raccoon dogs. The findings help reveal how wildlife populations respond in the wake of catastrophic nuclear disaster like those that occurred at Fukushima and Chernobyl. Humans were ...

Nuclear Fusion To Produce Clean Energy

Sustainable nuclear fusion power produces clean, virtually limitless energy – won’t arrive in the 2020s. Fusion power poses one of the greatest engineering challenges – building devices to replicate the nuclear reactions that occur in the Sun and the stars and capturing the resulting energy. It involves generating massive temperatures – more than 100 million degrees Celsius, creating the conditions for hydrogen ...
