Have you ever wanted to know a nuke works? A nuke is produced with Nuclear Fission. It is when a neutron hits the nucleus of an atom of radioactive materials which frees more neutrons. Energy is released when the neutrons of the atom are knocked off and start the process again causing a chain reaction thus causing a nuclear bomb to explode. Watch the video to learn more!
