Space Exploration Missions Need a Reliable Source of Energy. It takes a considerable amount of energy to launch any rocket into space and escape the pull of gravity from earth. This energy is provided using different types of liquid chemical fuels or sometimes solid fuels.

A Fully Upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Comes Online. A particle accelerator is a machine that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high speeds and to contain them in well-defined beams. The accelerator is also known as the “atom smasher” or “super collider “. ( personally, I like atom smasher..)

New Methods for Extending Global Uranium Reserves. Nuclear energy is considered to be clean as it produces no emissions or contribute to global climate change. It is not considered renewable because simply in its present commercialized form of nuclear fission there is a limit to amount of fuel available to be mined.

Will We Soon See Commercial Nuclear Fusion Power? As a reminder for us non-nuclear physicists, nuclear fusion is a reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei come very close and then collide at a very high speed forming a new nucleus. During this process, matter is not conserved because some of the matter of the […]

The Promise of Fusion Reactors. Nuclear fission reactor technology offered the promise of safe clean energy for the world. At least at first. Then came Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima and we all have to ask ourselves, is nuclear fission safe? For decades we have heard that the ultimate clean nuclear technology namely fusion will […]

Lessons We Should Learn from The Nuclear Disaster of Fukushima Dai-ichi. On March 11th, 2011 an earthquake registering a 9. on the Richer scale triggered on Tsunami of the coast of Japan. Both the quake and the Tsunami wave impacted the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear facility causing the worst nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown. We […]

The Elusive Weyl Particles. CAMBRIDGE, Mass–Part of a 1929 prediction by physicist Hermann Weyl — of a kind of massless particle that features a singular point in its energy spectrum called the “Weyl point,” — has finally been confirmed by direct observation for the first time, says an international team of physicists led by researchers […]

 Nuclear Salt Reactor – ( TeK-THinK ) A liquefied salt reactor is under the class of nuclear fission reactors where the elementary coolant is a mixture of molten salt. Liquefied salt activators work at very high temperatures compared to the water-cooled reactors. They perform at very high temperatures in order to increase the thermodynamic efficiency […]
