Radiation is tiny particles and energy being fired from something as it becomes a more stable element. Nuclear fission only works because of this.

Nuclear waste, like anything radioactive, is deemed 'safe' after 10 half-lives. However, half lives on some elements are indeed very long.

What I was saying is basically that the energy being fired from nuclear waste could be harnessed in some way. Though the longer the half life, the less energy is going to be given out in the same period in time, which is probably why it is not used.

Apparently, from what I remember, the French have found/are looking for stuff to recycle the waste
I believe it could be used again to make power (though not to infinity)

I believe they actually find uses for the waste, as opposed to the US which buries it under dirt, hoping it doesn't become a problem later
The thing about water is that it absorbs radiation very well. they use them in the reactors to control the rate of reaction. If it goes to fast, they dump more water on it. They also dump the radioactive into pools of water in the US, not just France.

I reckon it might be the number of exclamation marks in the title.

The Interesting News Article Thread has (almost!!!) as many exclamation marks in the title. It's actually probably because Crabwarrior decided to place this interesting thread in Total Mayhem.

Exclamation Re: Nuclear Power!!!

Some reactors produce elements used in atomic weapons. I wonder why people don't like that type?

Of course, being a crabwarrior you wouldn't understand why people wouldn't like a nuclear war.
