        Nuclear Reaction: Fission

        This video segment adapted from FRONTLINE introduces the research that led to the first atomic bomb and, later, to nuclear energy production. The narration details why, when the nuclei of a particular isotope of uranium (U-235) are split, enormous amounts of energy are released that can be used to generate electricity.
