Radioactive Wastes Radioactive Wastes Radioactive wastes, must for the protection of mankind be stored or disposed in such a manner that isolation from the biosphere is assured until they have decayed to innocuous levels. If this is not done, the world could face severe physical problems to living species living on this planet. Some atoms can disintegrate spontaneously. As they do, they emit ionizing radiation. Atoms having this property are called radioactive. By far the greatest number of uses

Polar Bears
Polar Bears Word Count: 1049 Polar bears are big, white bears (sometimes darker fur) that live in very cold regions like around the artic poles. There are 21,000 to 28,000 Polar bears alive that are known. Polar bears swim in water and are carnivores, they eat fish . Polar bears feed mainly on ringed seals and bearded seals. Depending upon their location, they also eat harp and hooded seals and eat carcasses of beluga whales, walruses, narwhals, and Bowhead whales. A polar bears\' stomach can h
Nuclear Waste Management
Nuclear Waste Management
Nuclear Waste Management Nuclear Waste Management Nuclear energy harnesses the energy released during the splitting or fusing of atomic nuclei. This heat energy is most often used to convert water to steam, turning turbines, and generating electricity. However, nuclear energy also has many disadvantages. An event that demonstrated this was the terrible incident at Chernobyl\'. Here on April 26, 1986, one of the reactors of a nuclear power plant went out of control and caused the world\'s worst
Low level waste
Low level waste
Low level waste Low-level Waste facility: Nuclear Fusion, a process in which two light nuclei combine to form a single heavier nucleus. An example of this is the sunrays they are the simplest form of nuclear fusion. The use for this is fusion is used as a fuel. But the risks are radiation poising which is very deadly. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- * Copyright DueNow.com Inc. * [Category]: Science [Paper Title]: Low-level Waste facility [Text]: Low
