This project examines the renewable alternatives of fossil fuels in view of their projected depletion. We concentrated on nuclear energy and examined its potential dangers and ways to improve its safety. Special attention was paid to protection from terrorist attacks, storage and disposal of byproduct. We conclude that nuclear energy is a viable energy source to replace fossil fuels in the near future.
