The nuclear fission does not work!!! No infraction please!!! I was perhaps mistakenly under the impression that matter was destroyed in nuclear fission, but a careful look at this diagram (top right) appears to show all the protons, neutrons and electrons are balanced in the equation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission So our current nuclear power stations would appear to be running on 'hot air' or scientific bullsh*t? Can someone please explain what I am missing? (other than a brain).
