How a Nuclear Power Plant Works

A visual understanding of how energy is harvested during a Nuclear Reaction.

If the steam coming out of the towers was radioactive then all people around the tower would die. Steam can 't be radioactive unless mixed with radiation. Which would not happen in a nuclear power plant.

The energy is created when the heat coming from the nuclear reaction heats up water and directs it towards a turbine. This turbine turns and generates electricity to power things.
