in portsmouth they are allowing nuklear submarines to dock next to the city. my school (over 1000 pupils) is under half a mile from them. should the reactors blow the only thing to save us will be a pill. for the radiation. but what about that shockwave. i was just thinking some of you guys would know if its legal to allow nuklear material within that range of an urban area and a school?

Portsmouth UK?? if so its not illegal. But if you are talking about the American Portsmouth, then im not sure, you will have to ask an american member.

CBM,
How old are you? What are your grades like in science?

correct me if im wrong, but if a nuclear sub or power plant breaks down, only high levels of radiation are released, it doesnt explode like a bomb

I wouldn't worry man. Who knows how much nuclear waste they ship through LA everyday.

Thankfully exploding nuclear submarines are a fairly rare occurance these days. I'd also imagine they take particular care near schools.

sorry.. but I think you're safe.

thx gravrider. i thought i'd be incinerated. i haven't started nuklear phisics in science yet. but still how can one pill save me rom massive amounts of radiation? what chemical has that power? any ideas?

CBM,
Nuclear bombs explode, reactors typically do not.
Have you ever heard of a nuclear ship going down to a reactor problem?
Is it any different than having a nuclear power plant in your city?
What kind of pill were you referring to?

there's a good description of how the anti-radiation pill works here..

www.ki4u.com...


"There is no medicine that will effectively prevent nuclear radiations from damaging the human body cells that they strike.

However, a salt of the elements potassium and iodine, taken orally even in very small quantities 1/2 hour to 1 day before radioactive iodines are swallowed or inhaled, prevents about 99% of the damage to the thyroid gland that otherwise would result. The thyroid gland readily absorbs both non-radioactive and radioactive iodine, and normally it retains much of this element in either or both forms.

When ordinary, non-radioactive iodine is made available in the blood for absorption by the thyroid gland before any radioactive iodine is made available, the gland will absorb and retain so much that it becomes saturated with non-radioactive iodine. When saturated, the thyroid can absorb only about l% as much additional iodine, including radioactive forms that later may become available in the blood: then it is said to be blocked. (Excess iodine in the blood is rapidly eliminated by the action of the kidneys.)"

What about those reactors in Russia. I know that was a while ago, but still.

Chernobyl (in the Ukraine) was a bad design for a powerplant. Essentially it had no containment vessel. Those types of plants are not built in the west due to the inherent dangers. Yes, there was a major radiation leak but there waqs no explosion. Quite frankly, I would be much more concerned about a dirty bomb than a nuclear sub or powerplant.

I remember seeing a photo gallery of this lady who visited Chernobyl (sp?) awhile ago... she was able to visit peoples homes that had been almost untouched since the disaster... it was a bit depressing

i think you you should worry more about the russian subs.wee man..uk subs have an exellent standard of safety and maintainance.i think the last major incident in pompey harbour was the mary rose mishap,was it not?

Actually, Faslane near hellensburgh Scotland is out Nuclear sub base, all the nukes in the UK are stored in and around that area aswell I think...

It's legal, and it wouldnt explode, just release radiation. Why wouldnt it be legal? There's nothing wrong with doing that..i think.....

heh, UK subs....the only problem with them are they leak....or atleast the ones the sold to Canada.

As one can see by this linked aerial photo, and having worked there myself, it is also not illegial, though the portion of the fenced in facility probably accounts for a half-mile.
