It's Saturday night where I am and my body literally hurts from paying attention and thinking the implications through these past few weeks. I can't watch anymore...I need a break.
I'm going out to dance my ass off and forget, hopefully, for a little while, that the world I grew up in is gone forever now.
I am heart-sick and spirit-sick.
I'll dance in remembrance and grief, but with little hope.
Hambadaay, the Sioux call it, "crying for the world".
But within the the concept is the aspect that you cry for joy, too, for life.
I'll dance for all of us tonight, and celebrate the glory of life that surmounts every thing the universe (and the idiots who populate it) throw at it.
Whatever the future brings I will face it as a human being who refuses to be broken by mere difficulty and impossible odds.
We adapt, adjust, and bloody well freaking survive, no matter what, and eventually prosper.
...the old world is gone now, and for the moment, only we lonely few know and acknowledge it.edit on 2-4-2011 by apacheman because: sp

So you are saying that Pu acts as a catalyst for fusion of H into He, then?
OK, I can understand that.... of course, it wouldn't then be the self-sustaining infinite chain reaction that was originally mentioned.... just two separate reactions, one fission and one fusion, each with its own end products that do not compliment each other.

BREAKING NEWS Power company reports 2 missing Fukushima nuclear plant workers found dead on site This was reported just now on Breaking News -Kyodo News Kyodo - Breaking News Link www.breakingnews.com...
Just caught it on NHK world, as they said
Two guys (aged 24 and 21) who were working in the basement doing electrical work of the turbine building of reactor no.4. Time of death 4 pm on March 11. Cause of death: haemorrhaging.
Seen on the kyodo Japanese site is the same apart from:
not electrical work but missing since the earthquake (4pm?) and that their bodies will require decontamination.
kyodo japanese 2 bodies found
NHK world is recorded.
edit on 2-4-2011 by zenzen because: change: hemorrhaging rather than bleeding, sounds more serious? less than less-than-normal?!
Additionally to the above info, NHK news website in Japanese also says these guys were doing a periodic (scheduled?) check of the power source or working on opening and shutting a valve. They experienced severe haemorrhaging throughout the whole body.
So, they say this is from an earthquake at 4pm? Or, what other time do we have for the 11th? This is reactor 4?
If it was reactor 4, what time sequence do we have here?
It's getting a little confusing for me, as well as probably new comers to the thread, to know which reactor we are talking about. Perhaps we could say reactor 4 or R1 or something, then it'll be easier to read back through. Just a thought. The photos with the suspected bodies are R2 right?

Okay, this is really not funny at all anymore. I really think we're giving TEPCO all the ideas they've been having in the last 2 weeks, only they ignore the good ones and run with the jokes:

The speed of sound varies with temperature, humidity, etc, but probably not enough to make much difference in this analysis I imagine.
Would it be possible to run a spectroscopic analysis on the video of the cloud to determine it's contents? Or would you need to pass a laser directly through the material to run those sorts of tests?
You would need photographic film at least. If you knew the design and charge read-out and amplification of the ccd array used in the camera you might be able to find a narrow range of elements but the uncertainty would be very high
