Topic: A question about nuclear reactors and backup power
Replies: 3
Views: 922

theoretically, nuclear plants are able to use low-quality steam from waste heat to power their low pressure turbines, thus providing local power needs. I've never heard of it actually being done, though. However, Fukushima Daiichi's trouble was not lack of power so much as the flooded power rooms, w...

If you are lucky, the only true losses are the files which got overwritten, a file recovery program should find the directories, and be able to recover most of the files.
But if the format rewrote every sector, then you are hosed.

Well, I actually bothered to do the math after almost four years, and according to my calculations, 1e12 neutrons per second is about one part in 40 million of the neutron yield from a 100 MW D-T reactor. So it's a bit less than eight orders down - by number . By energy, it's billions of times smal...

Almost right, Dan. Except there is not time in an H-bomb explosion to breed anything; the shell is undergoing fast fission of the uranium. Any absorbed Neutrons, in a weapon, are considered lost.

If the power source (with no outside input) is not part of the masses apparatus, they are NOT performing a closed experiment, and are getting a local effect from moving mass in the system.

Like I said, Woodward's not a "respected scientist".

delta charts... so very useful.
Yes, Bush's policies were not any better. Like I said, we have been in a depression since 2001.
Because everyone in Washington (except a few fringe people like Ron Paul and Rand Paul) is Keynesian, they will continue to do things which prevent recovery.

Once again: The unemployment rate peaked at almost 10% by the end of 2009, before the stimulus had any time to take effect! That is much higher than the original predictions were! Since then the unemployment rate has continuously gone down. That is a fact. Of course you can always twist and bend ev...

Well, we've got 4 million fewer employed now than when Obummer took office. When Obama took office, the United States was losing around 750,000 jobs a month. The last quarter of 2008 saw an annualized drop in growth approaching 9 percent. This was the most serious downturn since the 1930s, there wa...
