Question by kittycat: Why bury Japanese reactors in sand?
Who are these people, who suggest burying red-hot nuclear reactors in sand? The Three Stooges?

Anyone, who knows anything, about sand, in the presence of intense heat, such as a broken down Nuclear plant, should know what happens to sand, when it is heated.

Doesn’t the Nuclear Regulatory Commission know that super-heated sand turns to GLASS?

Any optician can confirm that this is how corrective glasses are made.

Why dont the experts know this?

  1. Perhaps if you told us why the sand turning to glass is a problem. I think that it’s a wonderful idea, if it keeps the radioactive plume from spreading further.

  2. The sand is just the carrier…it will be mixed with lead and a rare earth, I can’t recall which one. If your options are limited, you do what can be done.
