Nuclear Energy

The quest for nuclear energy began with the discovery of radioactivity at the end of the 19th century. Numerous experiments with materials emitting invisible rays led to a better understanding of the makeup of the atom. Ionizing radiation is a natural part of our environment. Its origin lies in the radioactive elements contained in the Earth’s crust, air, plants, and every living organism.
