Caption: Oldbury Power Station, Gloucestershire, England. This nuclear power station has been operational since 1968. It typically generates 435 megawatts (MW) of power, enough for a city 1.5 times the size of Bristol. It uses Magnox reactors to draw energy from hundreds of tonnes of fissioning uranium. It is a twin-reactor power station, run by BNFL, and is scheduled to close in 2013. Nuclear power obtains energy through controlled chain reactions involving the fission (splitting) of large atomic nuclei, such as uranium.
