This website, sponsored by BBC News, provides a brief overview of the nuclear fuel cycle, covering uranium mining, conversion, enrichment, and use in nuclear reactors or weapons. A rudimentary diagram of the fuel cycle illustrates the relationship between the cycle's parts. Users click on a step in the cycle to reach a dedicated web page that presents basic information in a concise format, along with supplemental photographs, illustrations, or animations. Though it offers little detail on mining and none on nuclear waste, the website is of value for its easily accessible language and visually interesting depictions of the main parts of the nuclear fuel cycle.
