Re: Indian Naval Aviation

Re: Kerala Floods - Aftermath and Save Sabarimala

BJP making significant inroads into local or assembly would be rather slow affair. Till such time their role would be confined to organize protests and bandhs when nutcase like PV take liberties on hindu beliefs. Commies are well entrenched as local body leadership is strong.

Usually in a reactor the steam after driving turbines is condensed into water and reused. Sea water being colder is used in the heat exchanger to take away the heat and condense the water. I dont think sea water is desalinated for use in a reactor circuit.
