  • Where does gold come from?

    How are chemical elements produced in our Universe? Where do heavy elements like gold and uranium come from? Using computer simulations, a research team from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, together with colleagues from Belgium and Japan, shows that the synthesis of h more

  • Common table salt may have been crucial for the origins of life

    One of the most fundamental unexplained questions in modern science is how life began. Scientists generally believe that simple molecules present in early planetary environments were converted to more complex ones that could have helped jumpstart life by the input of energy from the environment. Sci more

  • Nitrogen fixation in ambient conditions

    Abundant in nature (78% of the air we breathe), nitrogen is rarely used in the industrial production of chemicals, with the most important process being the synthesis of ammonia, which is in turn used for the preparation of agricultural fertilizers. Using nitrogen as a raw material ("feedstock") for more

How Nuclear Reactors Work

In terms of types of reactor, there are two main variations on the above theme for western reactors. The variations are related to the water that’s heated to produce the steam that drives the turbine. In boiling water reactors (BWR), the source of the steam that drives the turbine is water in the re more

The Actinides

The penultimate elements infographic focuses on the Actinides. Many of these elements don’t occur naturally, and are produced synthetically, with some of them existing only for a fraction of a second before they decay back into lighter elements. more
