In nuclear fission, an atomic nucleus is split. It is usually the uranium atom that is employed for this purpose, because it is the largest atom in the periodic table and as a result it is a bit unstable. But it still needs to be hit in order to split. The uranium atom splits when it is hit by a neutron. This way, it produces 2 or 3 fragments, and 2 or 3 more neutrons, which will hit other nuclei and split them. This way the process follows through so that the reaction is self-sustained; it is a chain reaction.
