Re: Fukushima Material Release

VEry useful report, Helen. Do you know if they have updated it, since the original release? I thought I saw somewhere that there was a revised report.

I got my hands on some presentations from TEPCO, about the Daiichi units and I'll be uploading them here for everyone.

Re: Energy Sources of the near future

KeltPhys, welcome to our debate group :-) You are right, Natural Gas and fracking is a hot issue, but not just because of the economics.

Re: Fukushima radiation is killing hundreds of whales!

Gradphys, you'll be surprised to what lengths people will go to just prove their point. I'm all for being passionate about something and I can understand that as humans we are all biased to some degree about pretty much everything, but totally making up things to prove a point is beyond being passio...

Re: Fukushima radiation is killing hundreds of whales!

Unfortunately, the internet and computers make it way too easy for people to fake things and make them so believable that unsuspecting individuals unwillingly propagate the hoax, in particular if it supports their point if view. I remember the fake reports, back in 2011, about the radioactive plume ...

Re: Radiation on Trip to Mars Dangerous

Fedya, I also quickly browsed the Science article. I think the information given in the few opening paragraphs should answer some (many ?) of your questions. Here is my understanding of it. The Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCR) vary in species and intensity according to the solar cycle. The energy spectrum...
