The water from the primary system is then directed back to the reactor to be heated again. The heat transferred to the secondary system creates steam. This steam supplies the ship with electricity and propulsion when it moves through the turbine generators and propulsion turbines, respectively. The steam, condensed back to water, returns to the steam generators to be reheated
    ...but a direct hit will damage the reactor and will cause a disaster but not a nuclear explosion.
    Hmmm...... I read somewhere that they are researching a more powerful nuclear generator using fusion theory instead of fission. Or is it out already?

    Yes, respect for those who lost their life in the war, especially Mr Lim Bo Seng.

    OT a bit:

    U know that in an underground nuclear explosion, the ground actually sinks in, to form a crater, than bursts out? Coz the sand & rock around the bomb vaporises, creating a smaller volume.

    fission or fusion..they are all the same---all parts made in taiwan..kekekeke.kidding aside...have anyone thought of how does nuclear energy had benefitted mankind?
