nuclear is important because if no nuclear we cant fresh the air.

it is harmful because of the waste that through in any space

Technology is very important to individuals because it keep them connected to others. Also, technology serves as a status symbol.


Nuclear energy or nuclear technology is mainly used for producing electricity but is also useful for producing active isotopes which are used in medecine and industry


The nuclear membrane is also referred to as the nuclear envelope. It is important for the nuclear membrane to break apart so that the DNA can form into chromosomes for cell division.


In power production (i.e. production of electricity) in nuclear power plants. It is also used in curing cancer.


Because they are also humans...


Uranium is very important as nuclear fuel for nuclear reactors; also is the raw material for the nuclear weapons.


Nothing is dangerous by its self. We are living in 21st century that is the century of technology advancement. No Technology is dangerous but its use of this who makes it dangerous or useful for mankind, e.g. Nuclear that can be used to produce energy and we can also make nuclear bomb. Its all about how to use technology positive or negative.


Plutonium is used as nuclear fuel for nuclear reactors to produce electric energy. Also plutonium is indispensable for nuclear weapons.


Nuclear energy is used in science in three general areas. We rely on nuclear technology in a number of areas of medicine. We also use nuclear energy to generate power. There are also research applications where nuclear physics is applied to learn and understand more about the subatomic world.


The dose makes the poison. Both are harmful above certain levels. The exact chemical form is also important.


Technology is important for People and as it makes work easier and faster, technology is also important as it keeps Businesses in date and let Businesses know who payees what and when and how much they owe. Also other things such as giving and sending emails/letters.


Nuclear energy and nuclear weapons, also some less important applications


For example plutonium is a nuclear fuel; also the isotope 233U.


Because it is very dangerous to run and the technology is also very expensive.


Harmful Effects of Nuclear Wastes:Nuclear wastes usually contain one or more highly radioactive substances. Radioactive nuclear wastes pollute the earth to a dangerous level of toxicity. If the nuclear wastes are exposed to underground water, the radiations get absorbed in water and then enter in living beings through food chains. Nuclear wastes emit harmful radiations. These harmful radiations affect the living beings. These harmful radiations damage our tissues, cells and rd blood corpuscles. The nuclear wastes radiations can cause the diseases like cancer, leukemia, etc. Radioactive waste also spreads through water that is used in nuclear reactors. This has a huge effect on the surrounding aquatic life. Waste products from nuclear power stations etc. are becoming a serious problem. Nuclear power plants do require huge amounts of water to cool their reactors. If this hot water is dump into rivers or oceans, thermal pollution may result. The heat can have a harmful effect on aquatic life. To protect the environment, the water must be cooled before it is released. Unfortunately, there is no way of stopping a radioactive nucleus from emitting radiation.


It causes harmful activities like skin cancer, cataracts. Mainly children are worst affected. It is also harmful for eyes.


Its not the nuclear energy, per se, that is harmful, it is the ionizing radiation that comes from the nuclear energy that is harmful. Also, its not the pregnant woman that's the issue, its the developing fetus that's the issue. Ionizing radiation is extremely harmful to developing fetal tissue, because any errors introduced at this stage have a very risk risk of compromising the viability of the fetus. Last, and lets be crystal clear on this point... nuclear energy itself is harmful to no one. Its the "generation of nuclear energy", i.e. the reactor itself, the power plant itself, that is the issue, if, in any way possible, there is an issue. You would not want a pregnant woman working as a radiation worker any more than you would want to give a pregnant woman an x-ray.


Plutonium is very important for nuclear weapons and for nuclear fuels used in nuclear reactors. But plutonium is also toxic and radioactive. See the link below.

Plutonium is used as nuclear fuel for nuclear reactors to produce electric energy; also plutonium is indispensable for nuclear weapons. The isotope Pu 238 is used as heat source. Also Pu-Be is a neutrons source.


The newest technology for blood sterilization is the so called shock-wave technology which eliminate bacteria and other harmful matres from blood. You can use photodynamic therapy to sterilize blood also.


Uranium-233 is not bad ! It is an important nuclear fuel . And also can be used in nuclear weapons.But it is radioactive and toxic as all uranium isotopes.


Very important. National Development involves managing natural resources and nature. Physics is key to understanding nature and technology is important to manging it. Education and economics and cooperation are also important.
