The Scientific American website has a series of recently published articles on various aspects of nuclear power. The U.S.--and the world--is gearing up to build a potentially massive fleet of new nuclear reactors, in part to fight climate change. But can nuclear power handle the load? This is the question that this special report attempts to answer. Articles address various aspects of nuclear power, including the availability of nuclear fuel, whether nuclear power can compete with other energy sources and whether nuclear fuel recycling is worth the effort and more.
