Nuclear Energy - The Better Energy is an initiative to promote knowledge and awareness about the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Physics PhD student Nirupama Sensharma’s vision in developing 'Nuclear Energy - The Better Energy' is to bridge the gap between her research as a nuclear scientist and her responsibilities towards society. She says that spreading awareness is the only way to counter the fear and stigma associated with nuclear energy. In the present age of technology, society is constantly evolving and moving towards advancement. To fight the current climate crisis, Sensharma explains that there is a need to reduce carbon emissions and find a way to progress using sustainable resources. She believes that embracing nuclear energy is the step that will take society closer to a safer environment.…
