Meet the nuclear generation

Go behind the scenes with the people making low-carbon nuclear electricity for us every day.

What is nuclear power? 

Shrink to the size of an atom and journey with us to the core of a nuclear reactor. Using virtual reality and CGI animation you can travel where no one has gone before. Watch how nuclear fission happens inside our power stations and how the energy is then used as steam to turn our turbines - producing electricity for your home.
