What is Life? Atomic (Nuclear) Power(原子力について)

Good morning everyone. Are you enjoying this autumn? Beautiful sight will be lost with the progression of time. So if you want to have good impression from such experiences, you should go to there with your lovers at this weekend. How many times can I see such beautiful places with my lovers in my life? If I can live until 80 years old, I can see SAKURA for only 40 times in my life.


Today's theme is about atomic (nuclear) power. Do you know the atomic bomb was actually used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan? Million's people have been affected from the bomb in over 60 years long. And many people were died by such effects. Basically, the technique of producing energy from nuclear power plant is just same with the bomb. At the nuclear power plant, the progression of the reaction are controlled in various mechanisms to prevent the critical progression. But if the control can not work, the big power plant will be melted down. And devilish effects will pollute our world for thousands years.


However, the oil and the coal have some limits, if they are not originated from animal bodies. Furthermore, we have depended the nuclear energy to live now. More than 30% of all electrical energy are generated from the Uranium 235 in Japan. Because I am a biologist, the detail mechanism of atomic power generation is not shown in this article. But we should know, understand, and accept the real fact or problem about nuclear power. I think so.


We are living in Japan. We do not have much resource, because the Japan is so small islands. What do we have to do for living now? Please think it as a problem of now. The prime minister of our country must be a good leader (^^;).


Today's class is over. Have a nice day. Click the button at the bottom of this What is Life?, if you are a student of this class. Please teach me about Prime numbers, if you love mathematics.
