Here'S the $100,000 question:
How many centrifuges, working round the clock, would be required to produce enough weapons-grade enriched uranium to make a bomb, and in what time
Can we get an expert answer on that one, once and for all?
At the moment, Iran might have as many as 3,000 operational gas centrifuges. They calim 3,000 - but most estimates seem to call that high, it's
Given that it's taken them the better part of a decade to get to this point (max 3,000 online), and they're averaging around 2% purity, how many
years will it take them to (a) get the new plant operational, (b) hit their goal of 54,000 centrifuges, and (c) manage to get those centrifuges
enriching to the 90% range needed for weapons grade enrichment?
