I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


Saw it on RT and ZH. Spent a LITTLE time wondering what an "isotope rocket" is.

Russians claim to have a nuclear-powered missile.

Say what?

The way you MIGHT have a nuclear-powered missile is if you could create a small enough reactor with a good-enough heat exchange to heat air fast enough to act as a propellant. ("They're operating with an unshielded containment") But it might spray fissionable material out the back end.

Now, what is an "isotope" rocket? The only thing we can think of is some sort of charged isotope which is magnetically-bottled sufficiently to cause a nuclear chain reaction hot enough to create plasma (MORE charged particles that can be directed by magnetic field.) I have no idea if any of that's even possible as a rocket engine, just wild-ass speculation on our part.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


Interesting.

But whatever it was, the US government says it already has its own, and it works and the Russians are just losers and will never make it work because it's impossible. And I know it's true because I heard it on the news.


And if democrats don't do anything different, how are they any better?

Yield ? What are you talking about ? Nothing happened in Russia. There was no explosion. Everything's fine.

Go away.

Not sure what you are talking about. Is this sarcasm?

I was wondering about the explosive force resulting from an explosion originating with a Nuclear Reactor. Not the same as a nuclear bomb, but still a nuclear source, and an explosion.
