This site aided me with my glossary definitions and with understanding the advantages of nuclear energy. The site offers different situations with environmental impacts based on nuclear energy and what other types of energy sources can come with nuclear energy. It shows the effect of nuclear energy on electricity for example and how it relates to a normal person's daily life.
The source was very useful since it gave another perspective of how nuclear energy could continue to affect the nation and the whole world in the future. What sort of energy and help does it give to electrical sources and what is the benefit of using nuclear energy?With this site, I was also able to gather information for my glossary page so I could define terms that were important in the nuclear energy world; such as atoms, nuclear fission, and the core.
