The world needs a new source of energy; one that is continuous, plentiful, inexpensive, safe and unspillable

Neutron Beams Detected at Japan Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant – 23 March

The 13 measured neutron beams may be evidence that uranium and plutonium leaked from the plant’s nuclear reactors and spent nuclear fuels have discharged a small amount of neutron beams through nuclear fission. english.kyodonews.jp Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Wednesday, March 23, it has observed a neutron beam, a kind of radioactive ray, 13 times on the premises of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after it was crippled by the massive March 11 quake-tsunami disaster. TEPCO, the operator of the nuclear plant, said the neutron beam measured about 1.5 kilometers southwest of the plant’s No. 1 and 2 reactors over three days from March 13 and is equivalent to 0.01 to 0.02 microsieverts per hour and that this is not a dangerous level. The utility firm said it will measure uranium and plutonium, which could emit a neutron beam, as well. In the 1999 criticality accident at a nuclear fuel processing plant run by JCO Co. in Tokaimura, Ibaraki Prefecture, uranium broke apart continually in nuclear fission, causing a massive amount of neutron beams. * Observation from Scientist Susan Rennison: “Have the Japanese been caught out by spy satellites? A meltdown occurs when the control rods fail to contain nuclear reactions in the form of neutron emission and so heat levels inside the reactor rises to a point where the fuel itself melts. This is the level, where neutron beams can be observed. When a nuclear chain reaction occurs, neutrons bombard atoms of the nuclear fuel, splitting
