Part 1 of 3 Parts
Most of my posts about nuclear energy concern the generation of electricity. Other uses such as creation of isotopes used in medical diagnosis and treatment or for the generation of heat for residential and business buildings. Today I am going to talk about several other possible uses of nuclear energy.
My last post was about computer modeling of currents in tokamak plasmas. This post will be addressing computer modeling of the effects of laser beams on plasmas in a different approach to nuclear fusion.
Nuclear fusion is a process that combines light elements in a plasma which is a hot, charged state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei. Physicists are working to create controlled nuclear fusion in a stable process that releases large amounts of energy. This technology would be safer and cheaper than using nuclear fission to generate electricity.
Loving a pet is always difficult when it's that animal's time to die, and there are pets I feel like I still haven't recovered from losing in my life. So it's no wonder that when a pet that's become an Internet sensation dies we all feel it hard.
There's never a shortage of weird news on the Internet, and here are just a few stories that I've read about this week.
Aliens are real, or so says the former manager of the DOD Aerospace Threat Program. Honestly is anyone really surprised, though? It would be a really small universe if we were the only signs of intelligent life in it!
Lately I am all about the Skinny Mixes! These things have zero calories, zero carbs and zero sugar, making them perfect for people who are watching any of those components or who just want to lighten their caloric intake when it comes to holiday drinks this year. I've tried several kinds, from the Salted Caramel Mocha to the Christmas Cookie, and have found many of them to be fabulous.
