Introduction: Over the years there has been controversy over whether nuclear power is the most efficient power production method in the world for the future. As global warming is increasing, the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air is also increasing, and a global concern is arising about whether the current power production methods using fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas are long term, as these power production methods are seen as temporary because these recourses are becoming abundant. The most widely thought concern of the population is how long the systems we are currently are going to last before the fuel for power runs out. There have been successful attempts to use ecological systems such as hydropower, wind energy, and solar energy, all of which have produced power but not to the scale of which steam coal engines have. Along with the technology revelation that has come forth during the twenty and twenty first century, nuclear power has emerged to become one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly power production methods not only currently, but also for the future. However, there are many misconceptions regarding the safety features of nuclear reactors. The nuclear disasters that have occurred in the past were heavily broadcasted in the media, and consequently caused a worldwide fear in nuclear power reactors, such as the Chernobyl Disaster in 1986 and a more recent one, the Fukushima Meltdown in Japan, 2011. Due to the advancement of
