The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran has made two nuclear announcements today !!

1) They have placed the first indigenous fuel rods into a Research Reactor.

2) They say they will start producing new yellow cake next year. Yellowcake is milled uranium oxide, known to chemists as U3O8.

According to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the fuel rods were produced at Isfahan nuclear facility and transferred to the Tehran Research Reactor under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors.

By placing nuclear plates into the Tehran reactor, Iran has taken the final step in completing the nuclear fuel cycle.


Several radio-pharmaceuticals made by Iranian experts were also unveiled by Ahmadinejad.

Abbasi said Wednesday that new generation centrifuges have been installed and activated at Natanz nuclear facility.

He made the announcement at the ceremony held to place indigenous fuel rods into the heart of the Tehran research reactor.

Iran also added 3,000 new generation centrifuges to its uranium enrichment program, bringing the number of its active centrifuges to 9,000.

Personally i think Iran should be applauded, with so much negative moves by the west involving sanctions and threats... they have still managed to achieve a great industrial advancement.

It should benefit their economy largely, being able to sell more oil while still providing needed electricity to homes throughout the region.

For those who disagree and believe that Iran has no right to nuclear power, i would like to see those people persuade their own country to abolish nuclear power themselves.

It could be the name of his dog.
 


I say Kudos to Iran. Now, if we could only have a power source free of any pollutant that would be even better

It's not just about providing nuclear energy for Iranian homes. It's also about tapping into the global nuclear energy market - and this is what all the controversy about the Iranian nuclear program is about, not Iran developing nuclear weapons. If the west regarded Iran as a friendly nation and let them advance then they have the potential to become an even larger exporter of energy - potentially making them very rich in the long run while still having an independent central bank. This would set a bad example for the world, considering Europe, US, Japan and multiple other parts of the world are now basically united as one when it comes to finance.

I knew it.


World war 3 is nothing more than a cake fight but i will complain to global leaders for the waste of food though

Perhaps that is the 'threat' that Iran poses to the world.
Imagine a regime that supplied free electricity to its people.
Unthinkable.
Just in case it caught on.

Good job Iran. BUT...as Bugs Bunny would say, of course you know this means war. At least there is one country that will not be bending over when it gets fubared.

So where does the nuclear bomb material come into play ? Is the needed uranium for a bomb refined differently then the processed uranium that Iran has now displayed an ability to create ?
