Over the last decade, important advances have been made in the basic science behind nuclear energy, and as a result, our understanding of subatomic particles has been extended. Specifically, scientists can now identify more than 100 different subatomic particles.

And with these new discoveries comes the need to seek out more specific information on this topic. In the new title Nuclear Power, the authors point out, for example, the therapeutic and diagnostic promise of medical isotopes, as well as the use of high-energy particles, that can reveal the inner structure of the materials used to make consumer products. This technology has moved rapidly and could bridge the gap between physics and biology by allowing biologists to make super-fine analyses of the molecules in the genome, which are as complicated as strands of RNA.

A revised edition of Quarks and Sparks, Nuclear Power discusses the forces between particles that will dictate the fate of the universe in the very distant future.
