CrossFire Fusion Reactor The Magnetic and Electrostatic Nuclear Fusion Reactor, or simply CrossFire Fusor, is a nuclear fusion reactor designed by Moacir L. Ferreira Jr. for confining and fusing light atomic nucleus at significant rates, in order to produce enormous quantities of energy without pollution and no neutron hazards.

Glossary of nuclear terms
How a Nuclear Power Plant Works How a Nuclear Power Plant Works, Nuclear power plants run on uranium fuel. In the reactor, uranium atoms are split through a process known as fission. When atoms are spilt, they produce a large amount of energy that is then converted to heat. The heat boils water, creating steam that is used to turn turbines, which spins the shaft of a generator. Inside the generator, coils of wire spin in a magnetic field and electricity is produced, ...

Nuclear Power Plant Operations The major difference between nuclear power plants and fossil fuel power plants is that nuclear plants use the process of fission to make steam instead of burning gas, coal or other fossil fuels. The fission process and how nuclear power plants operate will be discussed in this section

Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR)
Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR) PWRs keep water under pressure so that it heats, but does not boil. Water from the reactor and the water in the steam generator that is turned into steam never mix. In this way, most of the radioactivity stays in the reactor area
