A1. Model of the Uranium Atom. Uranium is the basic element from which all nuclear technology comes, both civilian and military. It is the only naturally occurring element whose atoms can undergo "nuclear fission". The energy released by fissioning atoms is the power of the atomic bomb. Nuclear fission also powers nuclear reactors. American Museum of Science and Energy, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. 11 June 1982.
