Haven’t heard much about nuclear power since Three Mile Island and Chernobyl? Well, there are 433 power reactors operating all over the world right now. The International Nuclear Safety Center’s (INSC) Web page, maintained by the Argonne National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy, has the scoop on the plant nearest you.

Originally designed to provide information about the U.S. Department of Energy’s safety improvements to the 65 Soviet-designed reactors still in operation, the INSC’s Web page now includes detailed data on all of the world’s nuclear power plants.

The site catalogs plants by country, type, and design and posts updates about reactors planned, under construction, or shut down. Serious browsers can call up schematics of reactors, information on who builds and operates the plants, and even scientific papers about specific reactor types. An interactive global map puts it all right at your fingertips — without the risk of radiation.
