Researchers at Colorado State University (CSU) have broken the efficiency record for nuclear fusion on the micro-scale. Using an ultra-fast, high-powered tabletop laser, the team's results were about 500 times more efficient than previous experiments. The key to that success is the target material: instead of a flat piece of polymer, the researchers blasted arrays of nanowires to create incre
Generating nuclear power requires moving spent radioactive fuel safely over thousands of miles from reactor sites for reprocessing or disposal. To ensure that this is being carried out with the minimum of risks, Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) recently completed a nuclear "triathlon" that involved moving a simulated cargo of spent fuel rods over 14,500 mi (23,300 km) to record the stress a
Sony a6500 | 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS @ 95mm | ISO 100 | F6.3Being a child of the Midwest a hike, in my mind, is more or less walking across land that is mostly flat. There are trees, usually a dirt path, and maybe the occasional hill. A hike in Hawaii, I came to learn recently, can mean something vastly different.I was in Hawaii on a Sony-sponsored trip along with a handful of other photography jou
The world's nuclear weapons may be more vulnerable to cyber attacks than previously thought and could result in an accidental missile launch according to a study released by Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The study says that today's nuclear systems were developed in the pre-digital age and that little consideration was given to their vulnerability to malicious ha
The Federal Aviation Administration has officially designated seven Department of Energy (DOE) facilities as drone no-fly zones, restricting UAVs from being operated within 122m / 400ft of any of the following sites:Hanford Site, Franklin County, WAPantex Site, Panhandle, TXLos Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NMIdaho National Laboratory, Idaho Falls, IDSavannah River National Laboratory,
Sixty-two newly declassified videos have just been released by the US government showing footage of atmospheric nuclear tests from the first half of the 20th century. The videos, never before seen by the general public, have been uploaded to YouTube, offering scientists and historians a fascinating new look at a time of extreme nuclear experimentation...Continue Reading Declassified nuclear d

Many predictions examining the potential consequences of a nuclear strike focus on either the immediate fatalities or the radioactive aftermath. A team from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has taken a broader look at what effect the detonation of a nuclear weapon would be on global climate patterns – and the conclusions are a little frightening...Continue Reading Just one nuclear detonatio is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
