Description

The world is made up of atoms. It therefore follows that the science that helps us understand the atomic world, nuclear science, can be applied to just about everything. Applications of nuclear science and technology already play an important role in our daily lives, with widespread applications through medicine, industry and the environment. While there has already been much progress, the potential of nuclear science and technology remains vast. By enabling scientists to discover how things work from the inside out, we learn how things work at the most fundamental level. Researchers are using nuclear facilities and techniques to find cures for cancer and other diseases, make breakthroughs in clean energy production, create new materials, gain new understandings about the environment, and invent products to create brand new industries.
