Summary:Our ability to mine great amounts of energy from uranium nuclei has led to bill nuclear power as a plentiful, utopian source of electricity. But rather than dominate the global electricity market, nuclear power has declined from a high of 18% in 1996 to 11% today. What happened to the great promise of this technology? M. V. Ramana and Sajan Saini detail the challenges of nuclear power.
