Using Radiation In our Daily Lives
Nuclear science and technology improve our lives in many ways and in many different areas. It makes our food safer; it improves the quality of tools, gauges, and machines; it diagnoses abnormalities of the metabolism and treats cancers; it powers space travel; and it offers one of the cleanest and most environmentally-friendly ways of generating electricity.
Energy, isotopes, and radiation produced by nuclear science provide for a vast range of beneficial applications. Here we highlight a few.
