Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Nah, I'm going for Dilithium:It's on the internet so it must be real.

    Seriously though, sounds like all the plusses and few of the minuses of Uranium and it's named after Thor!

    However, if India has 25% of the worlds reserves I think we should be battering down the door to get in on the research.
  2. true, although I reckon thats why china and russia seem to monitor pakistan so much
  3. It's a reactor. If you haven't got somewhere good to put it, with lots of cooling water, it will break down just a quickly as any other. It will still make mess.- Just different sorts of mess.

    What always makes me wonder about these new designs is this- If they are so good, why does no one want to build them? Why muddle along with existing designs? It's not as if the current designs are perfect, but no one seems willing to say- We're going to put our shirt on this new type.

    There's natural conservatism, and there's people who clearly don't believe everything that the engineers tell them about how great this new idea is.
  4. Bananas contain thorium. (enough to set off airport radiation detectors)

    Expect Costa Rica to become a nuclear power...
  5. Many posters on here need to invest in Lithium....
