German nuclear plant found riddled with Conficker, other viruses

German nuclear plant found riddled with Conficker, other viruses According to F-Secure’s Mikko Hypponen, infections like those found at the plant aren’t particularly dangerous unless they’re part of a targeted attack.That doesn’t seem to be the case at the plant in Gundremmingen, which sits about 75 miles northwest of Munich.

Ancient floppy disks are still used in U.S. nuclear computer system

Ancient floppy disks are still used in U.S. nuclear computer system But according to a report from a congressional watchdog agency, a particularly vital arm of the U.Defense Department (DoD) still uses floppy disks in one of its systems.

The United States nuclear system still runs (in part) on eight-inch floppy disks

The United States nuclear system still runs (in part) on eight-inch floppy disks From missile defense shields to the F-35, the US military spends huge amounts of money on expensive military hardware.” According to the report “It runs on an IBM Series/1 Computer — a 1970s computing system — and uses 8-inch floppy disks.

30 years later, $1.6B mega-project finally puts Chernobyl to rest

30 years later, $1.6B mega-project finally puts Chernobyl to rest The Chernobyl reactor (hereafter, Chernobyl) has of course been buried in concrete and steel this entire time, but it’s also been 30 years since Russian authorities put that original “sarcophagus” into place.And the project, called New Safe Confinement, certainly was mega.

the Leaf goes Nuclear

the Leaf goes Nuclear You might need borrow maney hem awealthier neighbour like Bulgaria to make this possible, installing plumbing er a maybe a bus or two weild help your image.Not your faces, your entire bodies, we look like a fucking tranche with alopecia, its nauseating.

Fukushima's Reactor #2 is far more radioactive than previously realized, but no sign of containment breach

Fukushima's Reactor #2 is far more radioactive than previously realized, but no sign of containment breach Specifically, the company had found some of the fuel debris associated with the failure of Reactor #2 at the bottom of the reactor’s containment vessel.Previous measurements of the radiation inside the containment vessel had pointed to an exposure level of 73 sieverts per hour.

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.

The robots studying the Fukushima nuclear waste site keep failing

The robots studying the Fukushima nuclear waste site keep failing The robots sent in to investigate the nuclear fallout at Fukushima just aren't good enough.Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) head of decommissioning admitted on Thursday that more creativity was needed in developing its robots sent to the reactive zone.

Scientists use lasers to detect enriched uranium from a distance

Scientists use lasers to detect enriched uranium from a distance Naturally, being able to detect this isotope of uranium is important, and scientists from the University of Michigan think they’ve found a way to do that at a distance using lasers.By analyzing the optical and acoustic spectrum of the resulting uranium oxide molecules, the researchers confirmed there’s a measurable difference between natural and enriched uranium.

Radioactive boars have taken over towns abandoned after Fukushima

Radioactive boars have taken over towns abandoned after Fukushima Now, former residents of four towns inside that zone are being invited back, but officials have found these towns have new inhabitants.But these boars have been found to have levels of the radioactive element cesium-137 that are 300 times the safe limit for consumption.

Scientists use Mars rover technology to detect uranium from miles away

Scientists use Mars rover technology to detect uranium from miles away But a team of researchers from the University of Michigan has turned to a technique used by the Mars rover to trace chemical weapons, using lasers to detect weapons-grade uranium at a distance.“The primary obstacle to developing a nuclear weapons capability is getting hold of the right material,” Igor Jovanovic, professor and lead researcher, told Digital Trends.

Newly restored nuclear test footage now available on YouTube

Newly restored nuclear test footage now available on YouTube The US filmed every single nuclear test, and some of those films have now been declassified.As the Cold War ramped up, the US detonated hundreds of nuclear weapons in the South Pacific and American Southwest as it built ever more powerful bombs.

Physicists declassified thousands of nuclear test films, and they’re on YouTube

Physicists declassified thousands of nuclear test films, and they’re on YouTube Poring over declassified materials may not generally sound like a fun weekend plan, but when those materials are comprised of Cold War nuclear test films, you may want to clear your schedule.So whether you’re a History Channel geek or a sucker for action movies, you may just have a new plan for your Saturday evening.
