The nuclear disaster in Japan due to the earthquake on March 11, 2011 has raised a huge debate on nuclear power. A wealth of information is spewed in the internet. The bandwagon is full of opinions of people with their own agenda. At this juncture it is important for engineers to get a clear picture about the nuclear power before coming to any conclusion.

In this presentation an attempt will be made to explain the fundamentals of nuclear power, starting from nuclear fission to decay heat will be explained. Different types of nuclear reactor design will be introduced. What are the safety features in these reactors will be illustrated. A comparison of Canadian reactors with other designs will be made.
