Nuclear and Solar energy resources!

Where it's found, used, etc.

Solar Energy

Solar energy is the radiant energy of the sun. To transform the energy from the sun into electrical energy, solar cells contain the materials that are needed to transform the radiant energy into electrical energy. This electrical energy is brought to buildings via electrical wires/ cables. There it is used by electrical gadgets that have to plug into wall outlets.

Nuclear Energy

Nuclear energy is found inside of Uranium Nuclei. To transform the nuclear energy in the Uranium Nuclei atoms are split. Thermal energy and radiation is created after splitting the atoms. The thermal energy created heats up water to create steam. The steam spins a turbine changing thermal energy into mechanical energy. The turbine spins a generator that turns the mechanical into electrical energy. This electrical energy is brought to buildings via electrical wires/ cables. There it is used by electrical gadgets that have to plug into wall outlets.

Robots install solar panels?

"This one requires little explanation: Robots are cool, and they happen to be a lot better than people at doing repetitive tasks that require a high level of precision. So if we're going to build massive solar power farms - either photovoltaic or thermal - we can reduce costs and do it faster with the help of our robotic friends. We can even have robots wash the panels and mirrors!"
