So i just came across this article posted about 4 hours ago about Iran producing/testing first nuclear fuel rod.


Tehran: Iranian scientists have produced the nation's first nuclear fuel rod, a feat of engineering the West has doubted Tehran capable of, the country's nuclear agency said on Sunday.

The announcement marks another step in Tehran's efforts to achieve proficiency in the entire nuclear fuel cycle - from exploring uranium ore to producing nuclear fuel - despite UN sanctions and measures by the US and others to get it to halt aspects of its atomic work that could provide a possible pathway to weapons production.

Tehran has long said it is forced to seek a way to manufacture the fuel rods on its own, since the sanctions ban it from buying them on foreign markets. Nuclear fuel rods are tubes containing pellets of enriched uranium that provide fuel for nuclear reactors.

Tehran, Iran (CNN) -- Iran has succeeded in building and testing the country's first domestically produced nuclear fuel rod, the semi-official Fars news agency reported Sunday. The uranium fuel rod was tested successfully and installed in the core of a research reactor in Tehran, the news agency said, citing Iran's atomic energy agency website

I haven't read through it yet to see what all they covered, but a thread was started up on this earlier today - Iran says it has produced it first nuclear fuel rod...

I'd imagine the usual suspects are going to make a big stink about it, and will be used to fuel the fire (no pun intended). Much ado about nothing, IMHO, as Iran is a NPT state and is legally entitled to pursue nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

I wonder how Obama feels about this. What's going through his mind right now. By the way, iran hasnt invaded anyone in hundreds of years.

I think Nuclear energy is a bad idea. Though I can understand them wanting to have the same level of technology as the country that have been over-throwing its democracy, supporting a dictator, and giving Iraq chemical weapons and money to kill their civilians does.
