Saturday, January 28, 2012 Weaponized Fukushima Fallout: Radioactive Fullerenes and Endofullerenes

Abstract of Potrblog video:
"The improvised use of salt water to cool the Fukushima reactors and spent fuel pools resulted in the weaponization of Uranium fallout via the formation of Fullerenes and Endofullerenes. The term weaponization is based on our belief that this process significantly improved Probability of Kill (PK) values from a survivability / vulnerability analytical standpoint. See the attached video for further detail"

This article may be relevant for understanding why uranium from Fukushima could be "weaponized," as described by Potrblog:

How sea water could corrode nuclear fuel. January 26, 2012

[excerpted] "Japan used seawater to cool nuclear fuel at the stricken Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant after the tsunami in March 2011 -- and that was probably the best action to take at the time, says Professor Alexandra Navrotsky of the University of California, Davis.

"But Navrotsky and others have since discovered a new way in which seawater can corrode nuclear fuel, forming uranium compounds that could potentially travel long distances, either in solution or as very small particles. The research team published its work Jan. 23 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences...."

  1. Majia, you are doing important work here. Keep it up! :-)

    Just wanted to give a heads up: The link to your abstract on the Willamette U. website is not showing up:

    I'm encouraged to see such a conference is taking place in the U.S. I'm in Seattle, but if I can find a way of attending, I will! Go get 'em! :-)
