What is the name of the first Indian nuclear reactor?
What were some of the uses for the first nuclear reactor?
The very first nuclear reactor was Chicago Pile 1. It was built for research and scientific use. The first nuclear reactor outside of a university was built (at Hanford, Washington) primarily to yield plutonium for the atomic bomb destined for Nagasaki, Japan. Nuclear reactors were built primarily for electrical generation beginning in about 1951.

When did J. Ernest Wilkins Jr. invent the nuclear reactor?
J. Ernest Wilkins, Jr. did not invent the nuclear reactor. The ideas for the nuclear reactor were developed while he was an undergrad at the University of Chicago (though he was brilliant and entered college at age 13). Leó Szilárd and Enrico Fermi are credited with the first nuclear reactor design.

What is the name of the zionist nuclear reactor in palestine?
First of all, Palestine is not yet a country so it is impossible for there to be a nuclear reactor in that country. There is no nuclear reactor in any of the Palestinian territories (Gaza Strip and West Bank) controlled by either the Palestinian Authority or Hamas. Secondly, Zionism is a political ideology. Since inanimate objects like nuclear reactors cannot have ideologies, there can be no such thing as a Zionist nuclear reactor. If you are asking what the name of the Israeli nuclear reactor is, that is a completely different question. Israel has never confirmed that it posses a nuclear reactor, but it has also never denied that it has one either. However, most people do believe that Israel has a nuclear reactor located in the Israeli city of Dimona.

Who invented the first nuclear reactor in India?
The nuclear reactor wasn't invented in India. Nuclear power was being researched in England, Germany, Austria, Russia and the USA during the 1930s and 1940s. Idaho was the location of the first electricity generation using a nuclear reactor in 1951 with Russia operating the first to supply electricity to a grid. India's entry to nuclear power generation followed many years after the intial development work has been completed.

What was the first nuclear facility to generate electricity in the US?
Where was the first nuclear reactor built?
The first demonstration nuclear reactor was built in USA by Enrico Fermi in Chicago Stadium. Fermi was an Italian Physicist, best known for his work on Chicago Pile-1 (the first nuclear reactor). on 26 June 1954, in the town of Obninsk, near Moscow in the former USSR, the first nuclear power plant was connected to an electricity grid to provide power to residences and businesses. Nuclear energy had crossed the divide from military uses to civilian applications.
