CANDU 2.1

Its September 15 2020. Heres some homework fodder. Second time in this class I got 51%, It was condensed course. Gotta do another CANDU project. Same exact one.
Im indifferent. Got alot more time this semester. I can build off what I had previously. Lets see I can identify my perspective already, I am for nuclear.. Its a great equalizer, can be a great leveler too. The Candu is outdated. Theres Gen IV reactors available. People that say theres no money in Nuclear are dishonest. Theres also risk. That insurance companies wont cover. Insurance companies they greatest scammers of all time of course they dont want to participate in energy distributed to the poor. Take a wild guess which ‘nuclear perspective’ appears first in my search. First before I reveal the entity. Take note of China and Russia reactor constructions under dictatorship rule, no problems. Here the enemies of nuclear energy are powerful lobbyists like Sierra Club. Sierra Club pushing for renewable only and no nuclear. Like I said powerful lobbyists. What is their ulterior motivations? How fitting bunch of bazillionaires pushing for eugenics and more control.

It is time for people to become educated in Nuclear, meanwhile its booming industry in China Russia elsewhere. Russia also having suffered and caused meltdown problems in the past. Doesnt seem to be holding them back now. Powerfull lobbyists from where, and why holding us back. Its depressing the future of nuclear in the West is dependent on politics , that has nothing to do with science. Clearly a great flaw in democracy. These people trying to debate that inciunerating garbage and trees like the amazon is better for the environment. “Clear those trees for sugarcane for ethanol.” A la planet of the humans how can you ignore that movie almost at 9.7 million views. Ironically doesnt mention anything nuclear. Sure does point some fingers to you know who. Sure ill take it with a grain of salt, but its definitely relavant, and these green illusions. Just like “moronic bold green plans no one asked for JT ’20 ” Yes, we all want to save the planets, except some people really dont. Its not nuclear related so much but BC banned singlke use plastics. Yea i guess the recycling turned out to be a scam. All the plastic heading for the incinerator. Thanks green single use plastics. Meanwhile governments have banned the people from using single use plastics, lets see what happens to Coca Cola sweet fuck all. Maybe that should give you an idea how I feel. My buddy Shawn says: Its like we maxed out the oil energy technology tree. Didnt even look at alternatives cause money.When as a human species should be using all the tools available. Thats how I feel about Nuclear. The one thing ius human corruption. Imagine a perfect world scenario, free energy for all citizens. Would the key-holder turn it on humanity and cause destruction. Maybe with free energy and enough food and water people wouldnt be so focused on destruction, and killing with nuclear arms, or without. They claim its a deterrant. Anyways im grateful we arent in a cold war.Gratefull for those lobbyist before me, lobbying for nuclear disarmament. Now in the 2020s billionaires cant be trusted, doing evil things under the guise of environmentalism, or students. Grateful for opportunity to learn about energy and the world and humbly offer my perspective and solutions. Yea I could do better than this abomination government. Facts. I wrote it in my last one, you should have to complete a basic course on nuclear, before being able to gee fingers in policy. Shouldnt be the other way around. Being taught about nuclear while in a seat of power how backwards is that. Then the experts are left pleading to the dunce politicians. Backwards. In fact the only wayu to achieve better society would be to base politics and policies off science. Instead of money. Money the status quo. yea the one thing about true honesty it cant be bought out. Silenced but not for long.

Not to mention, the world has the right to be worried about nuclear. I dont think i have to post pictures of vaporized people, and cities to prove my point. I see it like this, Deuterium reactors are safe. Good luck convincing people that. And then you see something like the Iran missile launch on a civilian airliner. And these people want nuclear weapon capability.. Im suspect on the “Nuclear Responsibility” displayed, yea by dudes in 7th century wizard robes hell bent on killing people. Get the fuck outta here. Theres ur problem. Governments like Soviet Russia, ignoring the fallout basically until they were caught red handed by Sweden. Is that complete disregard for safety and human lives what we can count on from the Communist China Party. Im sure they really listen to the Sierra Club. More like theyd surely have a interest in anti-nuclear lobbyists in America.
That seems to be a trend, energy for me but not for you. All things considered a balanced approach is what I would be after. A solid mix of oil/gas, renewables, actual environmental policies, not just taxes and destroying economies. Its almost as is these people have no financial, science, resources, or economic knowledge. Its like who is the only ones with 2 campaign planes during a ecological emergency. Maybe nuclear could solve the crisis so that billionaires can keep living decadently.
Alright that settles how i think. Im finishing off this Asimov book. Im on Foundation and Empire. Ive been recently thinking of Asimov and society and what he would think of it now. He wavers between a societal innefective breakdown to a efficient empire. So its like society can work, but people can screw it up just as bad. Processes. Too much law, not enough justice. Well wrote a thousand words on my perspective mostly opinions. Im proud of Candu Tech but its all but inaccessible to me. its a has been, at at the end of the road.

https://www.newcivilengineer.com/latest/developer-cans-20bn-wylfa-nuclear-power-plant-proposal-15-09-2020/
This one is interesting its the cancelling of proposed Advanced Boiling Water Reactors on UK island. Theres a old Reactor site there. Horizon and Hitachi parent company pulling out some 20 bn pound deal. From the article: “Horizon, which is owned by Hitachi, has yet to comment. The UK government has also declined to comment.

The plans were for two advanced boiling water reactors (ABWR) using a combination of Hitachi and GE technology. If built, the plant would have provided 2.9GW of power to the national grid.

Horizon was hoping construction would get underway in the next year and be completed in the mid-2020s, with design maturity meaning the projects are low-risk, as Hitachi has already built four other nuclear power stations using the same technology.”

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-54158091
Here is a BBC UK article on the subject. Some interesting things were critics questioning how safe it really is. How green it really is. Its expensive and thats the main reason for them dropping out. Critiques of governments talking big plans and not actualizing anything. Some comments on the Brexit economy. People were going to school to learn the skills for this now cancelled project. I guess that interesting to look at nuclear during economic downturn, and green energy and jobs. Considering 20 billion value was too much. What can that mean for our own deficit.

https://www.horizonnuclearpower.com/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitachi

https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-story-310584-4-.htm
Treasury Board President Jean-Yves Duclos defended Monday the government’s plan to spend more, despite a projected deficit this year of almost $350 billion.
So we coulda had 17.5 nuclear power plants. Instead nothing, but massive deficit, and nothing to show for it. This government doesn’t know the
value of money.

‘A STACK OF CAPABILITIES’: The top admiral in charge of the nuclear arsenal warned on Monday that China is developing new offensive nuclear capabilities that are inconsistent with its stated policy of never using nuclear weapons first.

“I see China developing a stack of capabilities that would be inconsistent with a no-first-use policy,” Adm. Chas Richard, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, told reporters at the Pentagon.

China, he noted, has already built 255 ships for its new coast guard in just seven years. “Their strategic forces are next on their to-do list … and I’m trying to posture us for the threat that we’re going to face, not the one that we have today.”

Chris Hall: There’s no path to net-zero without nuclear power, says O’Regan from canada


interesting debate about nuclear
Most interestingly was the formation of ‘green’ parties during the time being against nuclear proliferation.
Thats a core belief then.

Case and point about something different.
https://www.world-nuclear-news.org/Articles/Nuclears-flexibility-is-the-magic-to-create-a-clea
Just reading some of this, CANDU tech mentioned by Minister of resources Seamus. Case and point , after wasting billions now hes like oh we need a reactor.
Besides gonna need oil and gas to build that reactor etc. After watching the failed veterans affairs and court cases, as a veteran you’d expect some kind of ‘professional’ or someone with expertise. Just like the failed health minister, clueless on how the pandemic early warning system was essentially scrapped. Thats the one down fall of nuclear: plain corruption. The only way I could expect nuclear to succeed and that’s lead by science not politicians. After being caught swindling money, do your really want these people touching anything nuclear, or safety. That requires common sense. Searching up nuclear SNC contracts. Its gonna be Romania CANDU part 2, here in Canada. Would you rather nuclear in Canada be all hastily built with buddy deals, or built properly. Thats all I found for those parameters within the week.

I disagree with carbon tax for farmers, and taxed for what so government can piss away the deficit value of 11 Horizon Hitachi gen iii abwr.
Not even run a parliament, or uphold the law.
This government doesnt know the value of money.
Grown ups is not the adjective I would use.
Meanwhile, no reactors, nothing to show for it.
2 planes in a climate emergency, thats rich.
Claim theyre green.

This just having some realistic perspective on ‘green’ energy people talking about decade, if not more of research and development. R&D to get out of some carbon plan. More then just a carbon tax, thats still prettty muich license to pollute. Get rich from selling resources should be a problem paying the tax. Anwyays could do alot more.

Air quality indeed. Its gonna be all virtual meetings from now on. Cause disease and air quality will render face to face meeting obsolete. Considering what ive seen in 2020.
I mean especially what happened at Beirut port you gotta have some safety. Gotta say my research hasnt shown much nuclear error. I did see the leak at VC for something new. Im juts more and more concerned about the corruption aspect, either for money, construction contracts, weapons purposes.I dont think youd get much luck making a weapon with CANDU fuel rods.

Searching those weird things found another perspective article
https://atomicinsights.com/radioactive-isotopes-are-far-too-valuable-to-waste/
Its interesting discussing the nuclear waste, such as of that of a pork factory eww. That makes sense though using all the bi products.

Anyways it was just research im curious.

CANDU reactors are the only commercially available nuclear reactors that produce both plutonium and tritium
Oh look its Sierra Club.
Government being irresponsible, mind you this is 12 years old. So Sierra club is against the sale of nuclear tech to Indian specifically in this case. India now has a ‘breakthrough tech’.
Pretty sure I wrote something about India and Pakistan and dont want nuclear war. Nuclear responsibility. Hm seems like the rules are just for North America everywhere else is the real wild west. Either politics should adopt science or we should abandon politics as they are.

Track it again. Its by Gothenburg.

Just learning still about the Aircraft Carrier Admiral Kuznetsov. It has like a jump for the planes to take off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3AMB7ZFF3Q
I think its lovable, described as one the worst carriers in the world in this article:
https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-is-talking-about-scrapping-kuznetsov-its-only-aircraft-carrier-2019-4
As for Kuznetsov himself, Kuznetsov played a crucial role during the first hours of the war – at this pivotal moment, his resolve and blatant disregard for orders averted the destruction of the Soviet Navy. By June 21, 1941, Kuznetzov was convinced of the inevitability of war with Nazi Germany. On the same day Semyon Timoshenko and Georgy Zhukov issued a directive prohibiting Soviet commanders from responding to “German provocations”. The Navy, however, constituted a distinct ministry (narkomat), and thus Kuznetsov held a position which was technically outside the direct chain of command. He utilized this fact in a very bold move.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolai_Kuznetsov_(admiral)

Breeder reactors. This person seems to admire China’s reactor construction, but he lives on a secluded island. Yeah the real 1%.

India uses a breeder reactor and
The world’s first peacetime use of nuclear power occurred when the U.S. Government switched on Experimental Breeder Reactor #1 (EBR-1) near Arco, Idaho, on December 20, 1951. The town of Arco* became the first city in the world to be lit by atomic power from a reactor built near EBR-1, the BORAX III, on July 17, 1955. It was only temporary, but the way was paved for commercial use of nuclear power. The Arco reactor later suffered a partial meltdown — another World’s First. There’s no highway sign bragging about that.

This author talking about irrational fears that dont help us today. Thats kinda funny true. Try telling someone theyre having irrational fear lol. Oh your just being irrational. Tell that crocodilian limbic system that you’re in control! I guess with some better understanding of brain, and behaviors , training, can get past those things. I think some AI nuclear is good takes all the emotion and human error out of it. you know test it out on some less critical systems first but if NASA can do redundant software design; launch nuclear materials into atmosphere as asafely as possible (mitigating risk). I think that starcore demo reactor in Manitoba sounds pretty interesting.
The video of the Watts power plant construction was cool. This is the safe helium one ive heard about.

Star core mining interesting company.
Seen it on the TSX. 25 cent shares.
That would be quite the feat first modular reactor demo.
Cause hes right how can you trade that politically without seeing it in opeartion.
So, youll end up at a mining camp with maybe one or 2 truck modular reactors to power the base.
In space probably easier, already lots of radiation. Already cold.

The government offers “voluntary” evacuees about $1000 apiece if they choose to move away from the area. In addition, children and pregnant women living in the area are eligible for a one-time payment of $5000, to help with any health issues they may encounter.

The current government offered three options for national discussion:

total phase out of all nuclear plants;
maintain current levels of nuclear power, at about 15 percent of energy requirements; or
keep all operating plants and expand nuclear facilities as planned.
After holding public hearings in 11 cities and collecting 89,000 comments, the government announced that nearly 9 in 10 ( 87 percent) support phasing out nuclear power, and 8 in 10 (78 percent) want all nuclear power plants shut down immediately.

Thats a straight copy paste, but no doubt people dont want nuclear after disaster. I guess the question is, is it some other engineers disaster. Every plant isnt destined to meltdown. Better be getting more than 5000 bucks after I turn into the toxic avenger and my face melts off.

Go Isotopes, I mean Dodgers.

Omg uranium found everywhere on earth.
People also ask
Where do you find uranium in nature?
Uranium is one of the more common elements in the Earth’s crust, being 40 times more common than silver and 500 times more common than gold. It can be found almost everywhere in rock, soil, rivers, and oceans.

Uranium ore – Wikipedia

Im gonna do some funny searches. ” Uh oh I ate a square of Uranium:
How much weight would you gain if you ate a gram of uranium?
One pound of fat is about 3500 kCal or about 3500000 cal, so 1 gram of Uranium would result in about 5,000 pounds worth of fat when comparing energy to energy. you don’t get energy from eating Uranium; you just get cancer.

Oct 23 Google fix my problems.

After mining, the ore is crushed in a mill, where water is added to produce a slurry of fine ore particles and other materials. The slurry is leached with sulfuric acid or an alkaline solution to dissolve the uranium, leaving the remaining rock and other minerals undissolved.

A small number of reactors, most notably the CANDU reactors from Canada, are fuelled with natural uranium, which does not have to be enriched.The enrichment process requires the uranium to be in a gaseous form. This is achieved through a process called conversion, where uranium oxide is converted to a different compound (uranium hexafluoride) which is a gas at relatively low temperatures.

The uranium hexafluoride is fed into centrifuges, with thousands of rapidly-spinning vertical tubes that separate uranium-235 from the slightly heavier uranium-238 isotope. The centrifuges separate the uranium into two streams: one stream is enriched in uranium-235; the other consists of ‘tails’ containing a lower concentration of uranium-235, and known as depleted uranium (DU).

Thats interesting with the seperation of the heavier via centrifuge. More interestingly is the uranium in gaseous form.

OK here comes the dry portion
What isotopes of uranium exist?

Theres like several 23X’s 256’s or something like that 235
A:
How many uranium isotopes are there?
three isotopes
Naturally occurring uranium consists of three isotopes: uranium-234, uranium-235 and uranium-238. Although all three isotopes are radioactive, only uranium-235 is a fissionable material that can be used for nuclear power

Only 0.7204% of naturally occurring uranium is uranium-235. This is too low a concentration to sustain a nuclear chain reaction without the help of a material known as a moderator.

Learning about Fiestaware. Painted with Uranium discontinued because health reasons . Some fiesta.
Browsing this online museum finding some neat things.
https://www.orau.org/ptp/museumdirectory.htm

what type of isotope for CANDU process?
The uranium conversion process for CANDU heavy water reactors involves converting UO3 to uranium dioxide (UO2). This takes place in Port Hope, Ontario, at Canada’s only uranium conversion facility. Nitric acid and ammonia are added to UO3, which is then fed into a special kiln operating with special gasses to prevent extra oxygen from mixing with the pellets.

The conversion process for light water reactors involves adding fluorine to UO3 to create the gas uranium hexafluouride (UF6). This chemical form is particularly suitable for separating out the different weights of uranium (different isotopes of uranium weigh different amounts).

Enrichment
Natural uranium has too low a concentration of uranium-235 (its reactive isotope) for light water reactors. For these reactors, uranium enrichment increases the U-235 concentration from 0.7 percent to about three to five per cent. Enrichment involves separation of the lighter U-235 atoms from the heavier and more common U-238 atoms.

Yes with the centrifuges.

I think that having one operational will make the difference, but 27 bil and what to show for it is not good. There is money in it from the research I seen worth debating. I guess if money is being invested into nuclear its not going into the pockets of windmills and renewables. Im down with conservationism, Im not down with anti-nuclear progress. Im down with taking the politics out of nuclear cause what ive seen. Who would want these people in command of nuclear its a farce. I trust the candu tech and the science.Trust engineers. Hard to trust the people/money. Natural disasters. I mean if you can build a nuclear bunker you could do the same for the plant. Mitigating risk .

Canada builds the CANDU reactors, a Canadian designed nuclear power system. They’re considered an old and expensive design now, and people are actively pursuing new technology.

We are a notable player in nuclear projects, but how many of those get built anymore? The NIMBY’s have been winning that fight for decades now (not without good reason, to be entirely fair).

Nuclear tech.

Whether or not to utilize nuclear technologies, and to what degree. Are nuclear technologies beneficial to human society, and what dangers to they pose.
Pros and cons, opinions, perspectives. From past to current events.

Intro. How did I get here. Im 35, not a ‘nuclear expert’ by any means but had a chance to indulge in some research. I have a perspective, and opinions too. I have discussed with couple friends regarding some pros and cons to using nuclear tech. One of their complaints that opinion pieces aren’t factual. A desire to hear nuclear tech news without a heaping portion of someones varying opinion. I tend to agree with that statement then. I have my own opinions, and the news market is saturated. So there’s no point hiding that I am ‘for the use of nuclear tech.’ Right away an argument against, is that it just a complicated dangerous way to boil water. I think everyone can agree the risk, and dangers associated with nuclear can be higher. Im reading some Isaac Asimov right now “foundation”. Currently on ‘Foundation and Empire’ 1952 book right now. I love this book series though. It looks into a fictional futuristic human societies using nuclear tech. Its a fantasy world, but I can tell Asimov really believed in science and using tech to the maximum to benefit humanity. He was a bio chemist. Even in the Asimov world without divulging too much: has a nuclear dark age. Basically showing an archaic society without nucleics, couldn’t compete with a group that had. Knowledge is power essentially. Even in the Asimov universe there was tyrants, and bad governments.

From Asimov to Carl Sagan another science hero.

Sagan with golden record.

Carl Sagan was a child during ww2. As an adult he became science communicator. Also became involved in nuclear disarmament and politically active. My perspectives lie somewhere along that line. That nuclear tech is necessary for space travel. I like to believe in energy independence that nuclear can provide. Also I acknowledge some of the concerning previous times we have gone through. As if hiding underneath a school desk will protect from nuclear blast. Nevertheless nuclear will remain part of our future for better or worse. Its pros cant be denied.


USA/Soviet nuclear stockpiles by year.

Ill showcase some of the interesting things I have researched. Personally ive used some nuclear tech in the forces, and worn a dosimeter.

Nuclear technologies have markets, and economies. China, Russia are nuclear exporters. Canada has done nuclear exports in the past. In developing countries nuclear is a means to level the playing field. There’s a negative aura around anything nuclear just the word. With just cause, from Hiroshima, Chernobyl, Three Mile, Fukushima. Still, I believe nuclear can be done safely. With many benefits that cant be denied. So how to mitigate the risk . Whose responsibility to learn, or care about nuclear? For me looking at some jobs and reading some comments its maybe an interesting career someone like me could do.

In Pakistan nuclear tech news I found Karachi power generating station. Pakistan Atomic Energy commission developing additional sites to house more nuclear power plant. They’ve been using nuclear power supplementing their power grid for some time. Kanuup plant is the oldest and surpassed design life of 30 years. So here is PAEC CNNC CZEC ACP- 1000 technology. Its a pressurized CANDU heavy water reactor supplied by Canadian General Electric company. Just to say that regardless of opinions here is a massive infrastructure project underway with no signs of slowing down. Here the initial reactor was commissioned from 1972 to 2002.
Raising the quantitative power levels from 33452MW to 35975 MW within a year. PAEC has goals of raising the output all the way to 8800MW by 2030. Safe and successful operation of the Kanuup site for 48 years now.
I found some defense style articles which suggest Pakistan is a nuclear weapon state, and has a credible minimum deterrence posture which provides Pakistan security without costly arms race with India. Definitely the world doesn’t want nuclear war between Pakistan and India. Thats a bit concerning that some heated argument on the other side of the planet could result in nuclear detonation but lets be real has most of the planet consented to nuclear tests? Usage in conflict. In Pakistan have made it a country project including skilled manpower, education and training.

Ohio USA. Ohio is home to two nuclear reactors. Producing 88 percent of the states emission free-electricity.

Here I found Energy company requiring what seems to be bailout money. One commenter suggesting the tax payers scammers by big business once again so the shareholders reap the rewards. Lots of heated debate here, Im just an observer. Here another commenter suggesting that solar and wind are the cheapest now as the governments can make the taxpayer cover the cleanup costs. Theres differences between the buyback and the bailout apparently. I think I would be pissed too. Lawmakers seemingly profiting the shareholders instead of the taxpayers. Or the energy consumer.


President Museveni addresses some of the UPDF tank officers during the pass out of the commanders course at Kambamba Armoured Warfare Training School.

Uganda is a small sized country. Using CNNC to help develop nuclear energy. I read the state of the nation 2019 address because it came up in my search parameters. Many nuclear projects underway with some national pride. 850 sources in 419 facilities. Under regulatory control supervision. Arguably un-popular in America. Russia, and China busily exporting.

Nuclear technologies aren’t limited to reactors as I found evidence of International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA . Many nuclear tech projects written about, on the IAEA page.

This particular article; working with 60 scientists from several middle eastern countries. Using nuclear and isotopic techniques to improve crop yields on salt-affected soils. Using nitrogen-15 isotopic techniques. I have a transcript of the actual science in my log shared at the end of assignment. Desalination is cool tech that can be helpful for everyone.

In another recent example IAEA working in a partnership with Mauritius agriculture. Using nuclear technology to develop tomato seeds that can thrive in increased temperatures. These seeds then are distributed to farmers a helping protect a multi million national industry. The plant mutation breeding involves exposing plant seeds to gamma rays. The plants are then multiplied and observed for new, and desirable traits. Who would deny the Mauritius’s tomatoes? Its a smaller island 1000km east from another small island, Madagascar.


Theres more. In terms of agriculture nuclear technologies which particularly interests me, so I will include it. Unfortunately same source IAEA but its good, Its a technique I learnt about sterilizing fruit flies to end offspring. Argentina is set to boom with the export abilities to the largest fresh fruit market in world. (China) The fruit fly quarantine checkpoints eliminates the fruit fly population. Exports of stone and pome fruits are expedited reducing post harvest treatment.

“Atomic Gardening”
Mentioned the seed irradiation and testing for desirable traits in plants. Also food irridation technologies. To remove unwanted molds.
To be fair unless I was really starving, and watched someone else eat irradiated food it might be something I avoided. Radiation symbol on food does seem a little counter intuitive. Noted I probably couldn’t tell the difference in a taste test. For the sake of argument I would eat a irradiated mold blasted peanut or something else provided it was safe to consume.


Irradiated fruit label.

“Mutant Fields”
Processes and challenges.

Before

Kuwait institute for Scientific research. Displaying some completed and ongoing scientific research projects. All sorted by accomplished, and ongoing projects.

After

I found some other data of research on edible food packaging. It was interesting to me because there was a lot of data and chemistry perspective in real life application. Especially food packaging industry generates a lot of individual waste. Its encouraging to see some front line science tackling some applied problems.

Countries from Costa Rica to Uganda using food testing labs to check for residues and food contaminants. Mobile labs. Regular testing labs.

My most compelling argument is that of space exploration. Right away without nuclear there is limitations for powering spacecraft away from the sun. If NASA rocket scientists can launch a good amount of Plutonium 238 “airborne hazard” through the the atmosphere, safely above human populations. People can have energy independence through nuclear. Doing this with some redundant safety, with several hundred people working on the team. This proves, and inspires me that humans are capable of safely working on some massive nuclear projects with the safety of earth and humans as top priority. I learnt about the space battery facility in Idaho. These photos not possible without nuclear tech:


Sunset from mars.


Cassini spacecraft first view of Saturn.

Medical:

Chest xray.

Its not the science that is evil, its a corrupt evil intent. There’s without a doubt some negligent disposal of nuclear waste in our past as well as accidents, human error, corruption. However safely disposing of nuclear waste, long monitoring, and safety could be a meaningful job I could do. Douglas point waste facility.

More Jobs. Uranium mines in Saskatchewan. Learnt a technique miners use to find, and extract the uranium ore. It must be extracted refined. Mining is a necessary component of nuclear. 2013 1.2 billion industry in Canada. Mining has a negative connotation and reputation. The pattern; energy companies come make a profit destroy the environment, and when its time to clean up it falls on the taxpayer. Oil companies want oil based energy economies, same with coal. Aforementioned have made energy monopoly niches for profit , in turn using those profits to lobby governments with desired intents. When governments should be developing energy sectors equally. In broad strokes the tesla revolution also using mining for lithium practices. The batteries charging from a mixed energy grid. My concern these miners are doing the dying and shareholders, again getting rich off resources that could be scarce/essential in the near future isn’t a team player strategy.

Cross section mining. Drill the bore hole, attach larger bit, extract ore as it falls down bore hole.

The least compelling argument is the fate of nuclear future, lies in politics not in science. Perhaps completing a basic course on nuclear should be requirements for participating in the democratic aspects of nuclear policy. Considering how corrupt politicians seem these days is a good argument for additional policies to protect the tax payer, more importantly humanity. Separate the politics, and science. There should be rewards for learning the content, and also for any risk hazards associated with the work environment. The ultimate consequence: Nuclear annihilation of earth. Is a pretty bad consequence. Yet energy independence for all humans is nothing to be scoffed at.

Opinions.

Nuclear technologies. Glow in the dark gun sights, smoke detectors. I was a soldier 16 years part of some daily life.

Nuclear medical technologies. They exist. I was never able to use ultrasound. I was in a coma at hospital amputating almost dying 11/30 days waiting for my ultrasound appointment. MRI and similar diagnostics are a useful technology that should be abundant, and readily available.

Commercialization of nuclear tech.
Learnt about Marie Curie and how things were back then. Selling snake oils and tonics. Sadly took many victims of radiation to study and learn the benefits. Just like early car safety nuclear cowboy days are volatile. Both USA and Russia, Japan.
More commercial business, I mentioned the space batteries. Also dosimeter technologies. PPE safety.

Thirsty?

The CANDU tech is proven safe. That being said, it isn’t the energy industry to cut corners. Reading about whistle-blowers. Concerning stories I have read. The nuclear reactor X is commissioned to be built. Safety specs are listed. Construction company sees the specs for fire ratings sensor A, and says: “that’s too expensive, can save a bundle by using sensor B.” So right away during construction, the first safety shut off valves improperly fire rated parts. It was addressed. Its just crazy to think of the designed safety procedures, ignored to save a buck. Meanwhile oil lobbyist rejoice, Nuclear = Danger Oil = Good. Yes the people that sold previous generations leaded gasoline.

Gerald W. Brown. Whistleblower on Thermo-Lag scandal.

Its like we were forced to maxed out the oil tech tree without even considering if that was the best idea. Yea best for profits, short term and un-calculated risk. But best for humanity is questionable. I would argue a balance of all mixed energies based on risk reward location and desired outcomes is best. Some would have earthlings believe its good destroying the amazon for sugar cane and ethanol jet fuel. How fitting for some energy rich dependent in their air conditioned office with ice in their drink to say: “Power for me, but not for you cause I dont understand nuclear.” I got news for you the amount of nuclear submarines in operation without any citizen input is kinda scary. Russia, and China aren’t really halting production for global warming. So what were going into poverty back to the stone age . Anyways CANDU tech was hot after the bomb. Free energy. Public opinion grew much worse with governments hiding nuclear waste. Chernobyl government denial. And so on. Fukushima shows even with strict safety protocols accidents happen.

Nuclear . Level the playing field in more ways than one. The obvious play on words ending ww2 early. Its pretty crazy. Imagine being the Japanese emperor and learning 2 cities have been vaporized, with many walking wounded. Imagine being responsible for so much death.


Enola Gay crew.

Nuclear benefits are undeniable to developing countries modernizing. Theres discussion of micro reactors benefiting communities or small towns is a interesting infrastructure propositions. This fits with a Isaac Asimov advanced society nucleics benefiting civilizations. Simply for the benefit. If such a opportunity for employment were readily available I can attest to more than a few people I know would be interested in long term employment/careers. Especially with the carbon pollution and climate emergency. Nuclear is a powerful too that should be respected, and used to benefit us all. Or, the other option is everyone go back to wood stove and steam. The cross generational clean up costs should be factored into the operating costs with no exception. There should be funds allocated to provide payroll for the half life of nuclear waste. 30-24000 yrs. Cross generational cleanup.
Just look at old abandoned fisheries sites, to see how good cleanup after profit works.

Again with more commercial and CANDU especially. It must have been like the 90’s with a bright future Chernobyll hadn’t happened yet. There was nuclear scientific race. Listening to some of the Scientists in Ottawa talk ambitiously about the CANDU nuclear conference. Really when I learnt about what happened to the Romanian and failed government. Construction problems. Could blame some human error, human greed. Buddy deals gone wrong. I find it find of sad they could have had a reactor. It was hot after the bomb but seems pretty much dead and inaccessible to me right now, unless I were a miner. As for being ‘hot’. Still hot in China construction, and exports with the data posted. In one example Romania dictator went bankrupt 1982. In more recent examples Countries like South Korea are currently involved in the building of four nuclear reactors in UAE under a $20 billion contract. South Korea : +20 B. Canada -343 B just in 2020.

On Reddit I learnt some interesting things. Some first hand accounts of people working in nuclear tech to read put things in perspective. They were able to illustrate the problems with nuclear stigma. Myths. As a beginner in nuclear im glad learning some real life applications helps put things in perspective. Learning step by step takes some of the mysticism out of it.
Perspectives range from dying industry to specialized and covering lots of cool education. If anything reading some comments from real people is informative. For someone pursuing a career in nuclear it would seem that political, and economical are hurdles.

A reactor from a design perspective is designed redundantly with safety in mind . Somewhere with the sale, the physical money, construction down the line, and reporting errors is a disconnect from the original intent. At least there’s evidence of this in the past. Computers like most tech and procedures has gotten better since Three Mile Island. In a ideal world politics, and human tendency for war, corruption, risk could be virtually reduced to zero. Using nuclear abundant energy to lift peoplekind out of poverty, and the climate crisis. Reading scientific bulletins for decarbonization for this research. Funny, I didn’t find any mention at all, about a carbon tax, or shutting down parliament being beneficial for ‘de-carbonization.’ So id suggest I know more about nuclear than most politicians.

Another entry in the half ass chem project.

What kind of radiation is classified as ionizing radiation?

https://www.mirion.com/learning-center/radiation-safety-basics/types-of-ionizing-radiation#:~:text=Ionizing%20radiation%20takes%20a%20few,or%20mass%20(or%20both).
Ionizing radiation takes a few forms: Alpha, beta, and neutron particles, and gamma and X-rays. All types are caused by unstable atoms, which have either an excess of energy or mass (or both).
Theres a who link I deleted since theyve been discredited lately.
http://nuclearsafety.gc.ca/eng/resources/radiation/introduction-to-radiation/types-and-sources-of-radiation.cfm
ome types of radiation have enough energy that they can knock electrons out of their orbits around atoms, upsetting the electron/proton balance and giving the atom a positive charge. Electrically charged molecules and atoms are called ions. The radiation that can produce ions is called ionizing radiation.

There are many types of ionizing radiation. The following are some of the relevant ones:

Alpha radiation:
Alpha radiation consists of two protons and two neutrons; since they have no electrons, they carry a positive charge. Due to their size and charge, alpha particles are barely able to penetrate skin and can be stopped completely by a sheet of paper.
Beta radiation:
Beta radiation consists of fast-moving electrons ejected from the nucleus of an atom. Beta radiation has a negative charge and is about 1/7000th the size of an alpha particle, so it is more penetrating. However, it can still be stopped by a small amount of shielding, such as a sheet of plastic.
Gamma radiation:
Gamma radiation is a very penetrating type of radiation. It is usually emitted immediately after the ejection of an alpha or beta particle from the nucleus of an atom. Because it has no mass or charge, it can pass through the human body, but it is absorbed by denser materials, such as concrete or lead.
X-rays:
X-rays are a form of radiation similar to gamma radiation, but they are produced mainly by artificial means rather than from radioactive substances.
Neutron radiation:
Neutron radiation occurs when neutrons are ejected from the nucleus by nuclear fission and other processes. The nuclear chain reaction is an example of nuclear fission, where a neutron being ejected from one fissioned atom causes another atom to fission, ejecting more neutrons. Unlike other radiations, neutron radiation is absorbed by materials with lots of hydrogen atoms, like paraffin wax and plastics.

What effect does ionizing radiation have on water?
https://chemed.chem.purdue.edu/genchem/topicreview/bp/ch23/radiation.php#:~:text=The%20radicals%20formed%20when%20ionizing,electrons%20or%20removing%20hydrogen%20atoms.
The radicals formed when ionizing radiation passes through water are among the strongest oxidizing agents that can exist in aqueous solution. At the molecular level, these oxidizing agents destroy biologically active molecules by either removing electrons or removing hydrogen atoms.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_damage
Effects on water
Water subjected to ionizing radiation forms free radicals of hydrogen and hydroxyl, which can recombine to form gaseous hydrogen, oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radicals, and peroxide radicals. In living organisms, which are composed mostly of water, majority of the damage is caused by the reactive oxygen species, free radicals produced from water. The free radicals attack the biomolecules forming structures within the cells, causing oxidative stress (a cumulative damage which may be significant enough to cause the cell death, or may cause DNA damage possibly leading to cancer).

In cooling systems of nuclear reactors, the formation of free oxygen would promote corrosion and is counteracted by addition of hydrogen to the cooling water.[15] The hydrogen is not consumed as for each molecule reacting with oxygen one molecule is liberated by radiolysis of water; the excess hydrogen just serves to shift the reaction equilibriums by providing the initial hydrogen radicals. The reducing environment in pressurized water reactors is less prone to buildup of oxidative species. The chemistry of boiling water reactor coolant is more complex, as the environment can be oxidizing. Most of the radiolytic activity occurs in the core of the reactor where the neutron flux is highest; the bulk of energy is deposited in water from fast neutrons and gamma radiation, the contribution of thermal neutrons is much lower. In air-free water, the concentration of hydrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen peroxide reaches steady state at about 200 Gy of radiation. In presence of dissolved oxygen, the reactions continue until the oxygen is consumed and the equilibrium is shifted. Neutron activation of water leads to buildup of low concentrations of nitrogen species; due to the oxidizing effects of the reactive oxygen species, these tend to be present in the form of nitrate anions. In reducing environments, ammonia may be formed. Ammonia ions may be however also subsequently oxidized to nitrates. Other species present in the coolant water are the oxidized corrosion products (e.g. chromates) and fission products (e.g. pertechnetate and periodate anions, uranyl and neptunyl cations).[16] Absorption of neutrons in hydrogen nuclei leads to buildup of deuterium and tritium in the water. Behavior of supercritical water, important for the supercritical water reactors, differs from the radiochemical behavior of liquid water and steam and is currently under investigation.[17]

The magnitude of the effects of radiation on water is dependent on the type and energy of the radiation, namely its linear energy transfer. A gas-free water subjected to low-LET gamma rays yields almost no radiolysis products and sustains an equilibrium with their low concentration. High-LET alpha radiation produces larger amounts of radiolysis products. In presence of dissolved oxygen, radiolysis always occurs. Dissolved hydrogen completely suppresses radiolysis by low-LET radiation while radiolysis still occurs with

The presence of reactive oxygen species has strongly disruptive effect on dissolved organic chemicals. This is exploited in groundwater remediation by electron beam treatment.[18]

Like drinking heavy water

Why is there concern about changes to matter as a result of exposure to ionizing radiation?
https://www.radiationanswers.org/radiation-introduction/radiation-exposure.html#:~:text=Ionizing%20radiation%20can%20change%20the,they%20might%20divide%20too%20much.
Search Results
Featured snippet from the web
Ionizing radiation can change the structure of the cells, sometimes creating potentially harmful effects that are more likely to cause changes in tissue. These changes can interfere with cellular processes so cells might not be able to divide or they might divide too much.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK218706/
Ionizing radiation damages the genetic material in reproductive cells and results in mutations that are transmitted from generation to generation. The mutagenic effects of radiation were first recognized in the 1920s, and since that time radiation has been used in genetic research as an important means of obtaining new mutations in experimental organisms.

Thats it.

CANDU 3

Wow so far behind this is really futile for this class but not for learning. It July 14
Ive missed using the site and slamming on my keyboard. I Should watch movie from the list soon. Sadness since the rental reviews has ended at hundred episodes. Not sure if it will ever return but

Here I am Candu 3.
How does the Uranium used in a Candu reactor exist in nature?
CANDU reactors use natural uranium as their nuclear fuel. Natural uranium is composed of about 0.7% uranium-235, and the remaining 99.3% is mostly uranium-238 which cannot directly be used in a fission process to obtain energy.Feb 18, 2016
I seen they drill from the bottom up and as it falls down the clearing lane then they extract it.
So thats it first the earth then the solar system.

thanks google.
What concerns exist about the mining and the processing of natural sources of uranium?
Weaponization, meltdown, climate change and mining in general has impact on nature.
Big pits and waste water. Abandoned mines.
Some miners issues.
https://nuclear-news.net/category/1-nuclear-issues/uranium-1-nuclear-issues/

Just the bare minimum moving on in the notebook.

CANDU part 2

Homework fodder.
Soo behind, its gonna be ugly.

What isotopes of uranium exist.
Uranium-238
Uranium-235
Uranium-234

What isotope of uranium is used in the CANDU Process?
Its Uranium 235

What is a half-life
Half-life is the time required for a quantity to reduce to half of its initial value. . The term is commonly used in nuclear physics to describe how quickly unstable atoms undergo, or how long stable atoms survive, radioactive decay.

What is the half-life of the isotope of uranium 235.
700 million years.

I cant find anything on the waste of Candu.
the spent fuel remains Uranium 235,
or what fuel did it use? Not asking what fucking components in the reactor. Basic components of nuclear reactors
The core of a reactor contains the uranium fuel. CANDU heavy water reactors use natural uranium, of which 0.7% is U-235, while light water reactors use uranium that has been enriched so that U-235 makes up about 3 – 5% of the total. Cant find a fucking clear answer.

Nice thats it

Here is another from same page, so ill be brief.
Pakistan one of only 13 countries effectively using nuclear tech to meet own socioeconomic development needs, capable of sharing the nuclear knowledge and expertise with others peacefully.
Since 98
Foreign Office DG Kamran Akhtar said the huge Indian defence acquisitions and developments in the areas of artificial intelligence, cyber security and space militarisation were destabilising the region and the international community should exercise care and caution in sharing advanced nuclear and other related technologies with India, which was emerging as an extremist and anti-status quo state.
He said the international community had a collective responsibility to dissuade India from engaging in any misadventure as any such step would have grave consequences not only for the region but also for the entire world.
It Discusses Pakistans success with nuclear tech, and in peacefull ways. Listed.
This part states: Dr Naeem Salik said Pakistan became a nuclear weapon state once its security needs were neither understood not met by the world and its several arms control initiatives were not reciprocated and expectations for security assurances were not met.
“Pakistan has a credible minimum deterrence posture, which provides Pakistan security without engaging in a costly arms race with India,” he said.
I find that pretty interesting observing from the other side of the world im afraid I dont have enough for an opinion.

Offfers a guildeline book https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783319961897
This one is way cheaper only 52 Euros.
Its discussing Soil Salinity. Nuclear isotopic Techniques. (nitrogen and water required by plants) theres some links. Some photos. Saline groundwater, bad irrigation practices.

heres the actual science; THE SCIENCE
Soil moisture neutron probe and the nitrogen-15 isotopic technique
Soil moisture neutron probes are used to monitor moisture levels in soil. During measurements, the probe is inserted into the ground and the emitted neutrons collide with hydrogen atoms of water also present in the soil. The collision slows down the neutrons – the higher the number of hydrogen atoms, the more the neutrons are slowed down – and this change in neutron speed is detected by the probe to provide a reading that corresponds to the moisture level in the soil. The more of the detected slow neutrons, the higher is the level of moisture.
Nitrogen is a key component of soil and fertilizers that plays an important role in plant growth and photosynthesis, the process through which plants convert energy from sunlight into chemical energy. As nitrogen atoms interact with the atoms in soil, fertilizer and water, they change into forms taken up by plants, released in the air, or absorbed further into the ground. Fertilizers labelled with nitrogen-15 (15N) stable isotopes — atoms with an extra neutron — enable scientists to track the isotopes to determine how effectively the crops are responding to and taking up the fertilizer. This method is called the nitrogen-15 isotopic technique, and by using this approach management practices can be improved, which in turn can help increase crop yield and optimize fertilizer use.

I just had to copy paste that because i didnt want to mess that up. Im not totally sure how that works maybe theres a video but thats pretty interesting. I like de-salination tech because providing clean water for everyone is a noble pursuit.

Criticism from the editorial board about the 1 billion bailout of first energy and Ohio jobs .. and some profits for shareholders while the company goes under. So yea the energy company needs more money.
Back to the letter to editor. Heres the president with comments saying the companies arent related at all. And that the toledo blade is running a smear campaign. But did the citizens get deceived and ripped off.
The other letter mocking the president calling the coronavirus vaccine is big and fast like the Manhattan project. This person saying from 39- 45 wasnt particularly fast, seemd like a eternity to the scientist trying to defeat the germans.
but in this fast day of communication no one wants to hear vaccine cure in 6 years.. And a presidency run for 8 years if you get the re-elect, people be like whta have you done for me lately. Guess it speaks to the value of investment and time of these projects.. benefits.

___
The history of Nuclear power in Canada. & Perspectives that exist about using nuclear technologies.
Perspectives not opinions. That was a wicked thunder storm just now.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_power_in_Canada
Power provided by 19 commercial reactors, 7 smaller for research and pharma nuclear med. Goes on top say the type of reactor being used. Candu and its pressurized heavy water (type) PHWR
Goes on to talk about nuclear power unique than the uranium mining industry.
Back in 1942, British-Canadian lab in Montreal. ‘The Montreal lab.’ Administered by National Research Council to develop a design for a heavy water reactor called the National Research eXperimental Reactor.
NRX reactor would be the most powerful research reactor in the world when completed. Gotta do some definitions.
Heavy water and deuterium deutrium is just twice as heavy as regular hydrogen. Add it to water you get heavy water. Im no expert but it looks like its one neutron one proton instead of just a single proton. Means the mass is bigger and makes it more “.. increases the strength of water’s hydrogen-oxygen bonds,..” When a cell takes on more than half its weight in heavy water the cell fails and dies. Heavy water first produced in 1932 a few months after discovery of deuterium. They made water with the heavy hydrogen. Then its since inception its been common in reactors, however now they use enriched uranium and regular water.
Theres different types of heavy water, and some with no deuerium or like a half mix, some more oxygen. Physical properties listed…
Some history im reading. Harold Ulrey.discovered it, his mentor isolated it first with electrolysis. So after then they did mass produce it ands use it for reactors.

Chalk river ’44 first independent outside of USA and most expensive 46 montreal lab cklose moved to joined the chalk river. This was the main one for a while zeep
67-70 SLowpokes experimental. Kingston Jamaica and Polytechnique. just smaller ones for research.

refurbishment or closure, 95, 99, 08 11, 12

still some active for 16.6 % of the power grind 2015.

Anyways super brief.
___
June 15. I gotta get back to this, I learnt somethings.
Need to research some perspectives.
Scientific perspectives CANDU
Technological perspectives CANDU

Perspective is how something is viewed from an angle or a perspective.

Perspectives of /the study of the natural world with the goal of describing, explaining, and pre-dicting substances and changes
Perspectives of /the skills, processes, and equipment required to manufacture useful products or to perform useful tasks.

Ok so just what I learnt without too much internet ill try to form an amateur perspective here.
I think in terms of CANDU is pretty much solved in terms of science. The only science I can think of is some long term continuing studies on impacts say good or bad on CANDU anything Eco, and community health. The nuclear waste, effectiveness, economics. Thats some broad strokes.

For a C.A.N.D.U. technological perspective, well risk vs reward if the risk can be mitigated seems like a effective power source. Just like rigth away it would seem that oil companies and friends of oil companies wouldnt want that. Oil is usefull but humanity needs to nopt put all its energy eggs in a dangerous experiment. So yea it looks like nuclear power plants in Canada had its golden age but what are we from the stone age right now, seems like could use some of this technology alot more expand upon it. In terms of skills, well i learnt In Uganda they have some training programs. More energy more tech jobs and training required. I can think of handful of people that would work 20-25$ an hour. But is thnat whnat you want the lowest paid labor ores to watch safety at your nuclear reactor. My perspective we as human society should be using all the tools at our disposal and then react upon fact like the leaded gasolines. Right now its dunce politicians in charge leading us in the wrong direction. Its up to science. Why are the rich keeping the poor down and under powered and under educated. Because people waking up is the only thing that will stop these people.’
Anyways. Perspectives on Candu. First of all perspective is moot; the project is all but dead and inaccessible to me.
It was hot after the detonation of the ww2 nuclear bombs, “free” energy experimentation. The radiation stigma and realities are actual risk. If every kid on the block had a reactor is that a good thing ? At this point in Alberta some people would take high risk to gain a living income. In terms of energy its liker all that money is gone in Alberta nothing spent on infrastructure, even out of provincers come get a paycheck spends nothing in AB then bash AB from their BC living rooms. Edmonton the potholes and the amount of money going through that place its shameful. So i guess thats whats interesting about candu technologies developing countries making use oif it, us nah, we marks and getting scammed. We are the bounty. Enmax and direct energy, hell yea id rather invest in community reactor and cut the middle man. Maybe its a job I could do. Even on the moon/ mars would be a good place for a candu probably. Radiation poisoning the eco and community and breathing air basically when something goes bad the place is destroyed. Theres that ever present risk and stigma anytime you use those words.

Ok now i somewhat have some perspectives lets check the web.

a)https://www.hindawi.com/journals/stni/2015/143767/
Heres a massive journal. Research and development. It says its safe theres lots of variables that could potentiall cause some issues. Like chemistry containment and generational cleanup. Whose gonna clean up 150 from now when theres no money left for site clean up. Like what citizens are supposed to go clean this up after billions are made. I dont know fuckin fed up today argh! Anyways moving on.
This journal might be both scientific and technological research perspective.

b)https://www.reddit.com/r/nuclear/comments/h93jsy/is_it_worth_pursuing_an_advanced_degree_in_this/
Thats perspective. So basically why learn all this complicated stuff when theres no work or nothing to do. Otherwise its maybe a good starting point for some careers. This person talking about having 15 years programming experience from a nuclear career. Heres another commenter basically saying the future of nuclear depends on politics and not science that about sums it up.

So heres a big perspective, people are or will be too stupid to even learn operate this equipment. And its stupid politics not science that leads the way. Basically someone with no understanding has the power to destroy the planet. Still Hiroshima like was not very long ago 75 years, this year. Pay someone lowest wage possible to sit at the reactor station and hope Homer Simpson doesnt blow up the town. And even with all that safety got Fukushima plant radioactive water flowing into the ocean today. Thanks alot. Chernobyl another destroyed place. That with top people, with degrees in command, people with families. So people make mistakes. Even the pilots at hiroshima its no joke being pilot they dont just grab some shoe less guy off the street. Then the dread of being responsible for countless deaths. And im sorry CBC maybe back in the 60-70s had some merit, maybe the radio but the cbc today is complete garbage. Liberal payout to the media results in complete crap. Its clickbait favored over content and ignores the Pm and security failures, basically you’re under-informed if you only follow CBC. They miss the most important stories consistently. CBC? excuse me while I go barf. They gave away their best show hockey night in Canada and replaced it with nonsense and buffoons, drivel.

c)http://nuclearsafety.gc.ca/eng/resources/perspectives-on-nuclear-issues/index.cfm
Oh great the professionals, sorry covid lost trust in abomination government. Look it says here the role that nuclear can play in achieving deep carbonization.
right here it says : The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists focused its 2016 Clock Symposium on the role that nuclear can play in achieving deep de-carbonization..
Nice it doesnt say anything about implementing carbon tax or shutting down parliament. Thats a piss off, that stupid self serving politics are interfering with science and possible progress. Love how the church kept us delayed from space and science too. Theyre the true barbaric heathen sinners, choosing greed over scientific method.

checking my list.

d)http://www.nuclearfaq.ca/cnf_sectionD.htm
Theres just so much informartion.
Whose perspective?, well I got my own figured out. Maybe ill ask some educated people I know on their ‘perspective’.
There aint no candu reactor to talk about. Well i checked reddit already.
So the perspectives are lacking . And everyones getting cancer from Fukushima.

Following the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant accident in 2011, which was initiated by a powerful earthquake and tsunami that destroyed all immediate ability to cool the nuclear fuel in three recently operating reactors, the Canadian federal nuclear regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission set up a special Task Force to determine how safe Canadian CANDU reactors are against conceptually similar low-frequency, high-consequence natural disasters, and to compile a list of lessons learned. The Task Force, in its final report concluded that the CANDU fleet is safe against such threats, due to the “defence-in-depth” strategy of reactor safety that provides robust and multi-level barriers against a range of scenarios – but also made a number of recommendations that could improve safety even more (see above link). 404sCL

Moving on, Perspective on Nuclear Power.

Me personally I have some perspectives on the bomb and the places affected by reactor meltdown, ill get into that later, but I read Asimov foundation before the class, the storyline involves nucleics and barbarians.
I know nuclear tech is good at least from that story. Something humans need to understand, doing acrobatics with the elements. Its essential for space exploration.

1,https://www.rand.org/pubs/documents/D16568.html
This one called perspective on nuclear energy and its discussion on military uses and technological civilian advances, slight mocking tone but true that the humans went for the most destructive thing first. Its from 1968.

2,https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_power_debate
This about sums it up.
Something im noting is the clean up of sites and how its suggested to store nuclear waste way underground yet barely anyone does that, theres a couple dedicated waste storage sites.
Nuclear power plants are a complex energy system[141][142] and opponents of nuclear power have criticized the sophistication and complexity of the technology. Helen Caldicott has said
: “in essence, a nuclear reactor is just a very sophisticated and dangerous way to boil water – analogous to cutting a pound of butter with a chain saw.”

Cost of decommissioning plants.

Its like if theres was a one fail safe standard . normal accidents

research money cut ..

According to a Stanford study, fast breeder reactors have the potential to provide power for humans on earth for billions of years, making this source sustainable.[33] But “because of the link between plutonium and nuclear weapons, the potential application of fast breeders has led to concerns that nuclear power expansion would bring in an era of uncontrolled weapons proliferation”.[34]

Cant have unlimited power because someone with the key, will turn it on humanity.

Environmental effects
Main article: Environmental effects of nuclear power
See also: Uranium mining debate and Lists of nuclear disasters and radioactive incidents
Nuclear generation does not directly produce sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, mercury or other pollutants associated with the combustion of fossil fuels.

The primary environmental effects of nuclear power come from uranium mining, radioactive effluent emissions, and waste heat. Nuclear industry, including all past nuclear weapon testing and nuclear accidents, contributes less than 1% of the overall background radiation globally.

Yea thats a intersting stat but they arent denying the catastrophe of those particular events.

Theres some comparison on coal and nuclear.
Then I was viewing the Hanford site. Dupont. Looks like one could make a reasonable living off duties relating to nuclear waste maintenance.
Theres some crazy photos of the hanford site.

Im just imagining futuristic Asimov society with nuclear powers and the duties that would entail.
Its on the Columbia river and you can visit it in real life 10 hrs away.

Maybe if it wasnt always profit and not caring about the future generations we could get somewhere.
Weaponization of the waste. And what happens when a unstable government is ‘replaced’.
anyways, that debate has pros and cons debatable. I mean for developing country to have energy freedom thats amazing.

Sale of C.A.N.D.U. Technology Perspective

A)https://canadiandimension.com/articles/view/why-is-ontario-spending-billions-on-nuclear-energy-when-cheap-renewables-are-available
disagree. This guy hes like climate crisis so bad but ontario good lets use renewables. Since its gonna decommission anyways. In the states the nuclear provides more power to the grid than renewables on what I just read, and anytime i see the liberal government stamp I immediately know: lies.

More getting called racist, and pushing bogus agenda, and Im a colonial. What a crock.
Has barely anything to do with C.A.N.D.U. its strictly politics.
Sponsored : so this drivel get shoved right to the top.

B)https://www.ieee.ca/millennium/candu/candu_achievement.html
Ok this one i like it right to the point has useful information.
But from the design to bottom theres corruption standards arent maintained.
The whistle blower on the fire specs in example,its always some corporate fuck putting everyone downstream at risk with no care or consideration.
I was reading in one example: built right into the reactor safety specs designed to be able to shut down reactor safely with a wired connection , the wire connection wasnt insulated properly enough due to the chem company whatever decided not to do it. Thats just an example.

Still same page
The C.A.N.D.U. is a proven reactor.
Has a fuel cycle has goals to improve.
Its truly a global tech and seeing those increases to economy. That type of freedom should be accessible to anyone in my opinion.
In someone elses words:
“Meeting the needs of the developing world is hard to imagine without recourse to nuclear power. Equally hard to contemplate is the heavy environmental burden that future generations will bear if a massive increase in the burning of fossil fuels precludes the alternatives.

Despite the need for nuclear power, it would be naive to think that the opposition to it will suddenly lessen. Those in the nuclear industry must therefore work harder to ensure that the public receives a balanced picture. While we may not be able to match the rhetoric of the opposition, we are at least accountable, and we owe the public the facts that will help them to make up their own minds. In the final analysis, it is only the appropriate degree of balance in the views of the public that will permit nuclear power to make its proper contribution to the energy supply and to the well-being of the world in the years to come.”

Theres a for-side, theres a lower-mid, higher-mid, opposed, and unknown.
Id place myself between cautious and I like the idea of projects using a failsafe tech.
Its strange that that latest Michael Moore doc didnt mention nuclear power, wasn’t the focus but maybe its rhetorical.
Implied in its non mention, seems unlikely.

More not my words: “The global energy challenge is to meet the potentially vast demands of the next century, while maintaining a healthy environment. Even the most intractable conservationist would find it hard to deny the need for more energy or the right of billions of people, not to luxury, but to the basic necessities that electricity can provide.”

And that relates to this project specifically.

That site its like a institute of electrical ..

They can do cassini mission with so many variables so i believe people can operate these things safely. Its like a spy secret you could sell it to the highest bidder if you were the plutonium guy, and from wehat i gather the candu type of fuel isnt the type for weapons, but just the mention of nuclear power suggests nuclear weapons sets people off in a tailspin.

From sam,
“The obvious question is this: Why are they willing to continue investing public money in a technology that has never been successful economically or environmentally over supporting well-proven responsible renewable energy development that is succeeding at both?”

So Ive seen some financial viability to the reactor. This Article also pushing for more ‘renewables’ Got the liberal crap stamp. Talking about wasting public money please. However did raise some concern I can respect with the logistical issues with fuel source. Length of life and issues to get the fuel there , what to do with waste fuel. I disagree with the renewable promo. Simply put. I can respect NB maybe isnt the place for that, I dont live there. I guess its really up to groups of people whose more passionate trying to ge some projects ghoing here there, there wont work. Better with debate than delaing with it after the fact with no approval. Thats how I feel about this gov, going around making these important decisions with no approval, feeding their own interests. No one cares about the displaced family. Silenced.

https://www.world-nuclear.org/information-library/country-profiles/countries-o-s/south-korea.aspx
look at this I found:
South Koprea “…and exports its technology widely. It is currently involved in the building of four nuclear reactors in the UAE, under a $20 billion contract. ”
So dont tell me theres no financial viability. Theyre claiming to be closing coal plants. Its gotta be case by case. Use all the tools in that quest for infinite safe energy.
Anyways this government debates, some citizens dont want it.

“..nuclear technology to anyone. Iran? Sure. North Korea, well that transfer of Russian nuclear technology may or may not have been authorized. Now they are building a nuclear reactor in Bangladesh. But why not? Canada gave India nuclear tech that led to their atomic bomb, and trained the Pakistani father of the bomb. Canadian engineers watched as prison slave labor built a Candu nuclear plant in Romania. The Romanians couldn’t really pay, so Canada agreed to take it out in coal and jam. It’s a dirty corrupt business no matter who does it. The on-again off-again felon Mike Flynn was busy trying to selling nuclear reactors to dictators in the Middle East. China wants to make money selling reactors. Nobody makes money selling reactors. Nuclear power is the biggest money pit in the history of money pits. And the cost never ends. Deconstruction usually falls on future taxpayers. The dangerous radioactive waste needs to be secured and guarded for tens of thousands of years. It’s never over.”

June 19 Nates Bday.

Theres a few things left. Chernobyl/Mayak/Three mile Island , Xrays, Ultrasonds, Ct Scans, MRIs.

June 20. Got held up.
Oh yea I had been researching the Chernobyl.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster
The good news is its supposed to be cleaned up but 2065. Basically there was a gap in cooling something like that. Testers doing tests on the gap.Test for a power outage. It was hope that therte was enough power in the turbines to cover the minute of no power then could resume naturally.
” It was hoped to prove that the residual rotational energy in a turbine generator could provide enough power to cover the gap. Three such tests had been conducted since 1982, but they had failed to provide a solution. On this fourth attempt, an unexpected 10-hour delay meant that an unprepared operating shift was on duty.[3] During the planned decrease of reactor power in preparation for the electrical test, the power unexpectedly dropped to a near-zero level. The operators were able to only partially restore the specified test power, which put the reactor in a potentially unstable condition. This risk was not made evident in the operating instructions, so the operators proceeded with the electrical test. Upon test completion, the operators triggered a reactor shutdown, but a combination of unstable conditions and reactor design flaws caused an uncontrolled nuclear chain reaction instead.[4]:33

A large amount of energy was suddenly released, vaporising superheated cooling water and rupturing the reactor core in a highly destructive steam explosion. This was immediately followed by an open-air reactor core fire..”
There was an aftermath. Sarcophagus RBMK type.
Theres a difference the Ligth water uses graphite in a way that can prevent total loss of coolant.

Mayak
Makay , Kyshtym is a radioactive contamination accident. 1957 @ Mayak.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayak
In 1957 Mayak was the site of the Kyshtym disaster, one of the worst nuclear accidents in history. During this catastrophe, a poorly maintained storage tank exploded, releasing 20 million curies (740 PBq) in the form of 50–100 tons of high-level radioactive waste. The resulting radioactive cloud contaminated an expansive territory of more than 750 km2 (290 sq mi) in the eastern Urals with the consequence of sickness and death from radiation poisoning.
The Soviet regime kept this accident secret for about 30 years. The event was eventually rated at 6 on the seven-level INES scale, third in severity only to the disasters at Chernobyl in Ukraine and Fukushima in Japan.[5]
Mayak is still active as of 2020, and it serves as a reprocessing site for spent nuclear fuel.[6] Today the plant makes tritium and radioisotopes, not plutonium.[citation needed] In recent years, proposals that the plant reprocess waste from foreign nuclear reactors have given rise to controversy.

Look its pre-Chernobyl in USA.
“In particular, a hidden indicator light led to an operator manually overriding the automatic emergency cooling system of the reactor because the operator mistakenly believed that there was too much coolant water present in the reactor and causing the steam pressure release.[5]”
Human-computer interaction design oversights.
Also the steam to water process had a blockage in a steam to water filter. They blew it out with compressed air in the water that lead to water in air lines, errors down the line. Its amazing to me after the fact theyre able to do the investigative sciences to find all these clues.
