Do not despise what is small as it may be bigger than it is. The smallest unit in bodybuilding results in huge energy. Yes I am talking about nuclear power, which graduated from atoms. Science of nuclear energy has become one of the most important sciences at the present time. Because there are many uses in various fields such as the production of electricity and weapons. In this essay I intend to write about what is nuclear energy, how it is extracted, the positive and negative aspects and the latest developments in this field in the United Arab Emirates. There are many renewable sources of energy in nature; one of them is nuclear energy. The definition of nuclear energy is “The energy that holds together the nuclei of atoms” (Kanninen, 2006). Atoms are the smallest units that make up the matter. There is a nucleus in the middle of each atom and electrons moving around the nucleus in orbits. However, the energy that holds nucleus and electrons together called nuclear energy. In nature, some atoms are stable and others are unstable. Unstable atoms are radioactive which mean they have nuclear energy goes out of atoms as radiation. Radiation is one way of releasing nuclear energy. Nuclear fusion and nuclear fission are two other ways of freeing nuclear energy. “Nuclear fusion is the combining of two atoms into one. And the splitting of an atom called nuclear fission” (Kanninen, 2006). Both ways release big amounts of energy. However, both ways can be used in nuclear power. (Murray, 2009) The UAE always keeps pace with developments taking place in the world; therefore they decide to produce nuclear energy.
