How Does a Nuclear Power Station Work?

Answer

It's all a matter of steam. The heat made from enriched uranium boils water that creates steam. That steam turns the blades of a generator that creates all the power when in motion. After the steam passes through the blades it's condensed, cooled, and then sent back to be boiled again.
