Experiments in the early 20th century could not be explained by classical physics (developed by Galileo, Newton, etc.). Classical physics worked fine on a larger scale. However, on an extremly small scale it was flawed. Scientist started looking at things on an atomic level. This was the beginning of Quantum mechanics. This science was greatly advanced during WWII, when the military use was realized. Hope this helps some

No one currently uses nuclear fusion, as the technology has not yet been developed to actually put nuclear fusion into practical use. The only place nuclear fusion is used on a large scale is in nuclear weapons...bombs.

Yes, witness the many hundreds of nuclear power plants in the world today, most of which have operated entirely safely.

Iron technology was first developed in the middle east in about 1300 BC and well scientists are not sure which civilization developed iron technology first. Another thing the starting use of iron technology was the beginning of the iron age.

The first operational nuclear submarine, the USS Nautilus(SSN-571), was developed by the United States. The idea of a submarine dates far back in history, but the technology required to actually build an operational undersea boat is relatively new. Applying nuclear power to this concept is newer still, and it had to wait until nuclear power could be harnessed in the form of a safe and reliable nuclear reactor.

No. The Netherlands have not tested or developed nuclear weapons.

29 March 2010Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (Kaeri) and Korean steelmaker Posco have signed an agreement to jointly study technologies for advanced nuclear reactor systems. Meanwhile, Korean researchers have developed software to ensure optimal operation of power reactors. (source: WNN>world nuclear news.)It seems that South Korea has been developing nuclear technology aiming nuclear reactors. The fragment of an article above is dated 2010, but many years ago South Korea started its nuclear reactors program and it seems that they have high technology on this field.

Australia's technology is as advanced as the technology in all other developed countries.

because of the technology
