Yet, it also appears that the producers had to exaggerate the reality of the accident to produce the degree of emotional impact that they were seeking in developing this series.  This is the upshot of objections raised by the top US radiation doctor who, in fact, went to the then Soviet Union to treat victims, [...]

Cold fusion gets a deep dive

Scientists revisit the cold case of cold fusion According to a report in the University of British Columbia press, a group of scientists from the University of British Columbia, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Maryland, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Google are conducting a multi-year investigation into cold fusion, a type of benign nuclear reaction hypothesized to occur in benchtop apparatus at room temperature.  We only know about this research because a progress report published in Nature [...]

Estonia signs MOU for Moltex Advanced Nuclear Reactor development

Will Estonia be the first nation to deploy a 4th Gen Small Modular Reactor? [The below info comes directly from an announcement sent by Simon Newton of Moltex, which claims that it has designed and patented a reactor which is inherently safe, cheaper than fossil-fuelled power plants and uses nuclear waste as its fuel: saving money and saving the planet.] Fermi Energia of Estonia have selected Moltex Energy as their preferred technology as they look to establish carbon-free energy production in [...]
