Nowaday, the energy made from nuclear power plants used for various purposes. The production of electric energy continues. Nuclear power plants generate electricity for nearly 90 percent of their annual time. It reduces price volatility in other fuels such as gasoline. Many countries that use nuclear power plants mostly use fission technologies. The use of fission technologies in many countries means that they have been proven as safely as they are. So my opinion is that nuclear fission technologies are much better than nuclear fusion. If a nuclear fuel (uranium) atom absorbs neutrons in order to be stable, the uranium will divide into two smaller reactors and release one to three neutrons. The kinetic energy of waste is used to heat the water for the steam turbine. Neutrons are used to divide the next many uranium atoms and the process continues. And the energy that produced in the process use to operate the turbin. That’s how the nuclear fisson power plants work. The fission energy has many benefits such as no pollution, lower cost, and proven technology. One of the biggest causes of environmental pollution is fossil fuels, which emit tons of carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals. This in turn can harm the environment and even the health of people. This is not the case for nuclear fission. Nuclear power plants use relatively small amounts of fossil fuels in their operations, while producing a large amount of fission energy. That means they can provide heat,
