- Nuclear reactor - Wikipedia
A nuclear reactor, formerly known as an atomic pile, is a device used to initiate and control a self-sustained nuclear chain reaction Nuclear reactors are used at nuclear power plants for electricity generation and in propulsion of ships Heat from nuclear fission is passed to a working fluid (water or gas), which in turn runs through steam turbines

- Nuclear weapon - Wikipedia
A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb) Both bomb types release large quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter The first test of a fission ("atomic") bomb released an amount of energy approximately equal to

- The molten salt reactor (MSR) in generation IV: Overview . . .
Extensive research into molten salt reactors started with the U S aircraft reactor experiment (ARE) in support of the U S Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion program (Bettis et al , 1957) The ARE (), an experimental high-temperature molten salt reactor was developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) In 1954, the ARE was operated successfully for 100 h at steady-state outlet temperatures
