There is a huge amount of energy in an atom's dense nucleus. In fact, the power that holds the nucleus together is officially called the "strong force."Nuclear energy can be used to create electricity, but it must first I cannot recommend highly enough Naomi Klein’s incredible book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs.
