Original caption:
These pellets of enriched uranium will be sealed inside metal fuel rods to generate electricity in a nuclear reactor. After three or four years in a reactor, the pellets will become inefficient for producing electricity and the fuel rods will be removed from the reactor. After removal, the fuel rods (now called spent nuclear fuel) will be highly radioactive, requiring safe long-term disposal.
