WORLD'S FIRST
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.
