Petr Beckmann was one of the earliest engineering professors to take on the anti-nuclear establishment. Read the book review here for "Health Hazards of Not Going Nuclear." It is available at Amazon. For the price of shipping plus $0.01, it is a must have for all people supporting nuclear power. One reviewer says, "Dr. Beckman's energy book is still the most concise comparison of health hazards across multiple electrical generating technologies."
Jeffrey Mahn, nuclear engineer: This presentation addresses Basic Nuclear Energy Science. In order to understand nuclear energy and radiation you have to have the facts.
Joan Pye’s experience as PA to the Head of the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell where she worked for many years, convinced her that nuclear power is indeed the “Energy for the Next Generation”. Now in her 90’s she is the driving force behind the project.
(Piet, Bjornard, Dixon, Hill, Matthern, Shropshire) USofA - Comparison of Advanced Nuclear Fuel Cycles15.Feb.2015
This paper compares potential nuclear fuel cycle strategies – once-through, recycling in thermal reactors, sustained recycle with a mix of thermal and fast reactors, and sustained recycle with fast reactors. Initiation of recycle starts the draw-down of weapons-usable material and starts accruing improvements for geologic repositories and energy sustainability. It reduces the motivation to search for potential second geologic repository sites. Recycle in thermal-spectrum nuclear reactors achieves several recycling objectives; fast nuclear reactors achieve all of them.
