The Chernobyl nuclear accident about 25 years ago User:
Radioactive wastes consist of Weegy:
Radioactive wastes consist of high-level direct products of fission.
Radiation exposure immediately around a properly functioning nuclear power plant is about 1% greater than the normal environmental background exposure. [
The Megatons to Megawatts program involves a U.S.-Russian agreement to use uranium from Russian nuclear warheads as fuel for U.S. nuclear power plants.
Throughout the world, there is general agreement that the safest place to store long-term nuclear waste is deeply underground.
At present, the total number of long-term, commercial, below-ground nuclear waste depository sites in use in the United States is zero.
The Chernobyl nuclear accident about 25 years ago spread large amounts of deadly radiation over thousands of square miles. (This is not accurate, but is the answer they are looking for.)
The greatest risk of a disaster at a nuclear power plants is the large scale release and fallout of radioactive particles over thousands of square miles. (This is flat out wrong, but I think it's the answer they are looking for.)
The general U.S. government response to possible acts of terrorism on nuclear power plants since 2001 has ranged from adding armed guards to restricting access to vehicles entering the power plant facilities. (I think?)
Some of these questions have complex answers. Whoever came up with this biased list of questions and answers is obviously anti-nuclear and woefully ignorant of actual probabilities and consequences of nuclear accidents. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20110403161111AAEqsrE

Compared to standard fission reactors, fast-neutron reactors are Weegy:
In contrast to most normal nuclear reactors, however, a fast reactor uses a coolant that is not an efficient moderator, such as liquid sodium, so its neutrons remain high-energy. [ Although these fast neutrons are not as good at causing fission, they are readily captured by an isotope of uranium (U238), which then becomes plutonium (Pu239). This plutonium isotope can be reprocessed and used as more reactor fuel or in the production of nuclear weapons. Reactors can be designed to maximize plutonium production, and in some cases they actually produce more fuel than they consume. These reactors are called breeder reactors. ] Auto answered|Score 1|Frankie17851|Points 256|User:
