Caption: Nuclear power station. External view of a nuclear power station. The domes at lower left and lower right each house a pressurised water reactor. These reactors use a fissile material, such as uranium-235, as fuel. When a neutron subatomic particle strikes a uranium-235 nucleus, the nucl- eus may split, releasing energy and more neutrons. The heat is removed by water which then passes through a heat exchanger to boil water in a secondary circuit. This then drives a turbogen- erator to make electricity. Nuclear power stations produce no acid rain or greenhouse gases, but make radioactive waste. Photograph of Indian Point 2 and 3 in the Hudson Valley, New York State, USA.
