Atoms From Nuclear Explosions Are Embedded in Your Brain, But You’re Fine

Nuclear bombs are the most destructive weapons humanity has ever devised, but they have an unexpected upside. Thanks to their development and testing, they’ve contributed to some surprising advances in other scientific fields like neuroscience and climatology. You may wonder what neuroscience has to do with nuclear weapons, and to understand the connection, you need […]

Scientists Accidentally Discovered Quark Fusion, Could It Be the Future of Energy?

What’s ten times stronger than nuclear fusion!!? QUARK FUSION!! The particles that make up the neutrons and protons inside of atoms are known as quarks. And researchers found that when quarks bind together, energy is produced. Scientists have already been smashing together particles at the Large Hadron Collider but that’s been with hydrogen atoms, not […]

Cold War Nuclear Fallout Is Still Affecting the Pacific, What Does That Mean for Us?

These nuclear weapon explosions were part of a series of 66 tests by the United States government during the Cold War. The tests were conducted on the Marshall Islands, a remote area of the Pacific Ocean earmarked for unlimited nuclear destruction. These are the islands today, which are mostly abandoned. Though they look like any […]

The Only Man To Survive TWO Nuclear Bombs

Sometimes you are in the wrong place at the wrong time but it seems lady luck has your back. We might take the case of Dutch cyclist Maarten de Jonge who was said to have cheated death twice after being scheduled to travel on the two doomed flights, Malaysia Airlines MH17 and MH370, but he […]

What is nuclear fusion?

Lockheed Martin are traditionally a defence firm, notably the pentagons biggest supplier, however as military spending in the western world decreases, they have been diverting focus towards energy. Specifically the creation of compact fusion reactors, long thought to be a pipe dream as fusion reactors create many times more energy than is currently possible, but […]

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTR): Energy for the Future?

One thing’s for sure: we humans – we need electricity now. But, since fossil fuels are turning our environment into a crap circus, some scientists are telling us not to discount nuclear energy. In fact, they say that maybe we should switch our uranium-based nuclear reactors to safer, cheaper, thorium-based ones. Thorium is an element; […]
