The converse of the argument that this provides little danger is that a gram of antiprotons contains 100 trillion times the energy required to lift an apple 20 centimeters.
Like this, but 1,989,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times smaller:
I would spend no time making it look pretty.
It’s really awesome to see you branching out, and cooking great food and sharing it with for your friends. That’s what it is all about for me.
I got both a sous vide and an instant pot. Lately, the instant pot has been used a lot by the wife to make yogurt, but I did wrestle it away from her to make baby back ribs, on a weeknight.
Great. Like there isn’t enough space junk we’re leaving up there already.
It’s a Tesla, so it’ll burst into flames when it collides with the atmosphere.
Nope. The abstract indicates it’s low enriched uranium, suitable for fuel in a standard power generating reactor, but of zero use in a nuclear weapon.
Pfft. A single atom? I’ve photographed millions of those at a time.
Jesus, and now I am thinking of the Tiny Toons where they did this as a wrestling match...thanks for childhood flashbacks. Have a star.
It was probably one of the failed tests that had incomplete detonation. (There were several NK tests suspected of that, if I remember correctly.) Instead of achieving fission, the primer explosive just spewed uranium into the air.
This strontium atom is emitting light after being excited by a laser
It’s a WB-57F. Martin license built the English Electric Canberra light bomber for the Air Force back in the Fifties, then General Dynamics fitted three dozen of them with bigger wings to supplement the U-2. NASA acquired three of them for Earth science missions, though they get loaned back to the DOD and/or CIA for…
I edited within 10 seconds of posting but got Kinja’d
Am I reading this correctly? They captured particles above Alaska, one of the particles (less than 1 micron in size, human hair by comparison is 50 microns thick) contains some uranium, and some of the uranium is U235?
The sample was captured 2 years ago.
Except that they said it’s a recent sample (not as old as Fukushima or Chernobyl) How many U-235 satellites have been launched in 2016?
I do. The Soviets launched dozens of U-235 powered satellites. One probably re-entered the atmosphere.
Particle man, particle man

What’s he like? It’s not important
