(I couldn't understand why the ball kept getting bigger......... then it hit me.)
Andrzej Strupczewski, chairman of the nuclear safety commission in the Polish Institute of Atomic Energy, said it would be tricky to produce technetium at the Maria reactor because it lacked forced-air systems to cool the uranium that is split to make molybdenum 99. But a recent test went well, he said.
If the uranium needs to be cooled, I assume there is a good reason for that. I hope in their eagerness to kludge something the Polish reactor folks don't start a fire and end up with a European Chernobyl.

It wouldn't be safe for Americans to use such a radioactive isotope. Their blood is already boiling due to toxic levels of Pelosium in their system.

I am so pissed.
Here in Washington State we had one of the best reactors ever built. The Fast Flux Test Reactor. Clinton decided to shut it down. We fought a good long fight because it was capable of making medical isatops.
It is now completely shut down and never able to start up again because they removed the cooling from it.
