    For the past couple of years, a young woman known only as “Bionerd23” has been making strange, dangerous videos in and around one of the most infamous nuclear zones on Earth—the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Nothing is too radioactive or risky for her. She has shown herself getting injected with the radionuclide technetium, eating radioactive apples from a tree in Chernobyl, being chased by a possibly rabid fox, and picking up fragments of the nuclear plant’s reactor fuel with her bare hands. When a freakishly large catfish appears on camera, she calmly explains that it’s probably not a mutant—“They are just...
  • Uranium And The Natural Nuclear Reactor

    Uranium is the element having 92 protons in its nucleus with typically 146 neutrons. It is the largest naturally occurring element. Like naturally occurring Thorium, uranium is radioactive and eventually decays into radium and radon which are likewise radioactive. Both uranium and thorium decay through many series of radioactive elements until they eventually become lead. The process of radioactive decay follows a common yet generally unfamiliar law known as exponential decay. It is from this decay law that we get the term, "half-life". The way this works is that when you start with a fixed amount of a radioactive material,...
  • *Vanity* Fukushima Radiation likely to arrive on West Coast next month.

    Drudge posted an article (from a banned source) which stated that very low levels of Fukushima radiation will likely reach the West Coast next month. Incredibly, the article states that there is no federal agency which currently samples Pacific Coast seawater for radiation. I find it disturbing that: 1. There is money being spent for many frivolous activities, yet three is no monitoring for radiation on the West Coast? 2. The EPA is monitoring puddles on people's private property, yet there is no monitoring of radiation on the West Coast!

    Radioactive Wild Boars Increase in Number By Jennifer Viegas Radioactive wild boars are on the rise in Germany, where they have attacked and frightened residents, even snarling traffic when they gang up on roadways, according to Spiegel International Online and numerous other media reports over the past couple of weeks. Their radioactivity stems from Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear meltdown, which happened way back in 1986, but contaminated much of Europe. Apparently the nuclear contamination is still detectable in some animals, including Germany's wild boars. The Spiegel report mentions that German government payments compensating hunters for lost income due to radioactive wild...
