2Physics Quote:
"Stars with a mass of more than about 8 times the solar mass usually end in a supernova explosion. Before and during this explosion new elements, stable and radioactive, are formed by nuclear reactions and a large fraction of their mass is ejected with high velocities into the surrounding space. Most of the new elements are in the mass range until Fe, because there the nuclear binding energies are the largest. If such an explosion happens close to the sun it can be expected that part of the debris might enter the solar system and therefore should leave a signature on the planets and their moons." -- Thomas Faestermann, Gunther Korschinek (Read Full Article: "Recent Supernova Debris on the Moon" )

Nuclear Fusion

Today we have 3 short postings on recent happenings in Fusion research.
Nuclear fusion is the power that drives our sun and thus our life.
Supporters of nuclear fusion argue that it has the potential to be a safe and
sustainable source of energy that does not produce any greenhouse-gas
emissions or long-lived nuclear waste. A fusion reactor would need just
100 grams of deuterium and 3 tons of natural lithium to produce a power
output of 1 GigaWatt, which is equivalent to a large power station
[lithium is needed to generate tritium].
So, follow our 3 postings below:

I was struck by Mary Hodder 's take on the Flickr - Yahoo ID issue because I think she does a better job of articulating the emotional attachment aspect than I did: "Yahoo reset my cookie last week for Flickr.
