Welcome to the Franklin Nuclear Energy Resource Page



This page was created as a source of information concerning many aspects of nuclear fission and nuclear energy. With today's ever increasing need for energy, one needs to be informed of the different alternatives of energy production in order to make intelligent decisions on which method best meets the needs of the community and country. One method of producing this electricity is through nuclear energy. The topic of nuclear energy conjures many mixed emotions and is a topic associated with much misinformation. The intent of this site is to help inform you of the many aspects (both good and bad) concerning nuclear fission and the production of electricity utilizing this powerful source. After working through this site it is my intent to help raise questions (and provide answers to some of these) involving nuclear fission. Feel free to explore the links to the left and learn about the benefits, problems, applications, and history of nuclear energy production.
