Stanford researchers improve extraction of uranium from seawater

Stanford researchers improve extraction of uranium from seawater A new process for obtaining uranium from seawater could make the process cleaner, cheaper, and more accessible to countries around the world.Most of the world’s uranium is mined by Kazakhstan, Canada, and Australia, but smaller mining operations are active in a number of other countries.

Detectors have picked up an unexplained wave of radioactivity across Europe

Detectors have picked up an unexplained wave of radioactivity across Europe “Since only Iodine-131 was measured, and no other radioactive substances, we think it originates from a pharmaceutical company producing radioactive drugs.It is possible to partially reconstruct the path the cloud of radioactivity followed as it spread.
