ANS Friday Nuclear Matinee: The Basics of Nuclear Energy

Today’s matinee is a foreign film feature: an excellent overview of the very basics of nuclear energy.

The video is courtesy of Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation. The United Arab Emirates is embarking on an ambitious nuclear energy program, having signed a nuclear cooperation agreement in 2009 with the United States, and construction of the UAE’s first reactor is scheduled to begin later this year (for background and details see this ANS Nuclear Cafe interview with the UAE Ambassador to the IAEA).  Whether or not the agreement should serve as a model for all future nuclear cooperation agreements between the United States and other countries was the basis of this week’s ANS Nuclear Cafe DC Perspective article by Jim Hopf.
