My Internship: A Case Study
of Nuclear Fission
How can past successes and failures shape the future?Slide4
Two Approaches to Nuclear Fission
Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs) and Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs)Slide5
Boiling Water Reactors
Brainchild of Samuel
Untermyer II and brought to the market through a collaboration of General Electric and the Idaho National Laboratory. Heat produced by the reactor core causes water to boil. The produced steam is directly used to drive a turbine and then condensed.Slide6
Pressurized Water Reactors
Utilizes a two-loop system, preventing the primary coolant from spreading any possible radioactivity.
Originally designed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, several hundred PWRs are used for marine propulsion due to their stability and the insistence of Admiral Hyman Rickover.Slide7
Admiral Rickover and the Nuclear Navy
“Admittedly, one man by himself cannot do the job. However, one man can make a difference... We must live for the future of the human race, and not for our own comfort or success.”Slide8
Lessons we can Learn
Hedging our bets with multiple research paths.
