Submission + - Last operating Magnox nuclear reactor closes

nojayuk writes: The world's last operating Magnox nuclear reactor, Wylfa 1 in Anglesey, Wales was closed yesterday after providing carbon-free power for over 40 years. Wylfa1 was originally scheduled to shut in 2012 along with the adjacent Wylfa 2 reactor but it was kept operating for another three years with the innovative use of partially-burnt fuel from Wylfa 2 and remaining stocks of fresh Magnox fuel. The reactor will be defuelled and move into its decommissioning phase over the next year.

The Magnox design used gas-cooling and a carbon moderator with the capability to produce weapons-grade plutonium depending on how it was fuelled and operated. Its design fed into the next-generation AGRs which provide about 6GW of Britain's electricity supply today.

I make it 99 years since general relavity was written, and 110 years since special relavity was written, what is so special about the first confirming solar eclipse that marks it the beginning of relavity, the solar eclipse meanly showed that light could be bent by gravity, one of the prediction of general relaivity.

Keeping summer time all year round, would lead to it getting dark at 3pm on the winter solistice, that's crazy, want to leave work in the light at much as possible. In the summer its good we have BST, leads to saving on lighting as it doesn't get dark till later, but still wake up for work in the light most of the time. Forget the moaner, i think we have the right time system.

I've read almost every thing by him, the culture books make for great reading, complete with chatty star ship Minds. Also loved some of his non sf book, like complicity and Espida (sp?) Street. Yes his book where somewhat dark particularly many of the ending, but also refreshing in parts.

This device is never going to work, converting protons in neutrons in the metal isn't going to happen, the process requires nearly a MeV of energy that isn't there, (and Terahertz waves are no were near a MeV). This is a cold fusion under different name, cold fusion didn't work, and neither does this. Shame on NASA for supporting research so obviously wrong, and previously debunked.
