Turbulent Mixing Inside Stars Causes them to Expand, Contract, Eject and Explode, According to 3-D Model Described in the Journal "AIP Advances" WASHINGTON, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A powerful, new three-dimensional model provides fresh insight into the turbulent death throes of supernovas, whose final explosions outshine entire galaxies and populate the universe with elements that make life on Earth possible....

Oxygen’s Different Shapes Described By Researchers
2014-03-14 14:31:07

North Carolina State University Oxygen-16, one of the key elements of life on earth, is produced by a series of reactions inside of red giant stars. Now a team of physicists, including one from North Carolina State University, has revealed how the element’s nuclear shape changes depending on its state, even though other attributes such as spin and parity don’t appear to differ. Their findings may shed light on how oxygen is produced. Carbon and oxygen are formed when helium burns...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Radioactive cesium isotopes from Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant — severely damaged in the 2011 tsunami and earthquake — have made their way to the waters just off the coast of Canada. The announcement was made at the annual American Geophysical Union's Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu this week, but the scientists noted that the concentrations of the two isotopes were still well below safe drinking levels, reports Brooks...

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Science fiction sometimes foreshadows science fact. Remember the movie Forbidden Planet and the Martian epic Total Recall? Each had within their planets powerful alien-built reactors. The evidence continues to build that Earth contains a powerful nuclear fission reactor at its center, not made by aliens or humans, but by Mother Nature. J. Marvin Herndon presents the scientific basis, evidence and implications accumulated over the past 20...

2014-02-19 10:58:13

Oak Ridge National Laboratory Scientists and engineers developing more accurate approaches to analyzing nuclear power reactors have successfully tested a new suite of computer codes that closely model “neutronics” — the behavior of neutrons in a reactor core. Technical staff at Westinghouse Electric Company, LLC, supported by the research team at the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL), used the Virtual Environment for Reactor Applications core...

Series Of Experiments Show Initial Gain In Fusion Fuel
2014-02-12 14:37:51

Breanna Bishop - Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Ignition -- the process of releasing fusion energy equal to or greater than the amount of energy used to confine the fuel -- has long been considered the "holy grail" of inertial confinement fusion science. A key step along the path to ignition is to have "fuel gains" greater than unity, where the energy generated through fusion reactions exceeds the amount of energy deposited into the fusion fuel. Though ignition remains the...

Nuclear Fallout
2013-04-01 10:26:30

Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...

Fermium is a synthetic, radioactive metallic element. It has the symbol Fm and atomic number 100. It is an element in the actinide series. It is named after nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi. Fermium became the eighth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element discovered. It was first discovered in 1952 by a team of scientists led by Albert Ghiorso. They found fermium-255 in debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion from Operation Ivy. Fermium-255 was created when...

Americium is a synthetic radioactive metallic element. The symbol for Americium is Am and the atomic number is 95. Americium is an actinide that was first isolated by Glenn T. Seaborg in 1944 while attacking plutonium with neutrons. It became the fourth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element to be discovered. It was named for the Americas. It is widely used in commercial smoke-detectors and different types of industrial gauges. Americium in its pure state has a...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
