Re: Indian Nuke News & Discussion Thread-June 18 2008

Now, the first ever survey carried out to gauge the Muslim sentiment against the nuclear deal has found the deal to be ''anti-Muslim.''

Re: Indian Nuke News & Discussion Thread-June 18 2008

What is an oxide fuel (rusted Uranium?) and what is a metallic fuel? I thought any fuel had to be refined through a gazillion steps so that it takes 1,000,000,000,000 tons of "pitchblende" or whatever to give 100 kg of U235, which may have about 1% U235 and 0.2% U233? But I don't understan...
