energy was first invented by Enrico Fermi when he blasts the uranium atoms together with neutrons, and the output of the reaction weighed lighter compared to uranium (EBSCO, 2019). In the year 1942, on December 2, Enrico created the first successful nuclear fission through the use of uranium and control rod just the same way as they are used today. The United States used the illustration of the new technology to establishing its first atomic bomb test that was carried out in New Mexico’s desert in the year 1945 July (EBSCO, 2019). Therefore, Nuclear Power Net (2019) states, in 1948, September 3, the earliest nuclear power plant that made a bulb light was in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in America at the X-10 Graphite Reactor, when a nuclear reactor produced electricity for the first time. It was followed by a more massive experiment in 1951 on December 20 at the EBR-I Argonne National laboratory station in Arco, Idaho, in Western America. Long (2017) states that the success of the research led to the opening of the earliest nuclear power plant globally to spawn electricity at Obninsk’s Soviet city. Finally, in 1956, October 17, in England’s Calder

Hall, there was the opening of the planet's full-scale power station, and the commissioning of the Shipping Port Atomic power Station was held in 1958 May 26. Nuclear power plants were regarded as clean and safe compared to current energy practices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
