Not only will atomic power be released, but someday we will harness the rise and fall of the tides and imprison the rays of the sun.
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.
