NUCLEAR POWER PLANT
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first nuclear power plant?
In 1938 in Berlin the first
successful with nuclear fission was conducted by German physicists Otto Hahn,
Lise Meitner, and Fritz Strassmann. During World War II, many nations tried to
develop nuclear energy without much success. The University of Chicago developed
the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction on December 2, 1942 by Enrico
Ermin. The reactors created using this research were used to produce the
plutonium for the weapon dropped on Nagasaki, Japan.
The very first nuclear power plant built to
generate electricity for a power grid started operation on June 27, 1954 in
Obninsk, USSR. This reactor produced 5 megawatts, which was enough to power
around 2,000 homes.
