Question by blizzard boy: Where can i find Titanium or Plutonium other then a science lab?
i want some titanium or plutonium where can i possibly find some i live in Saudi Arabia and i need one of them for a school science project…

Answer by Jeremy
Titanium In its pure form exists in small particles…kinda like other metals. You cant just find a hunk of titanium lying around. You could probably steal it from somewhere though.

And plutonium is easy to answer for. It is a synthetic element and therefore doesn’t occur natuarlly. It must be synthesized in a lab and oh yeah is highly radioactive too so PROBABLY not the best for a school science project…although other uses come to mind. *hmmm*

Uranium is a natuarlly occuring element by the way…

Stardust Science – A Tribute to the HRIBF

A tribute to the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility, which in one form or another has been producing awesome science for the last 50 years. HRIBF shuts its doors for good on April 15th, 2012, due to budget cuts. More info available at www.supporthribf.org.

Chief Engineer Marc Rayman discusses the Dawn mission and explains why NASA is interested in asteroids Vesta and Ceres and how ion propulsion is being used to get there. Dawn will fit more pieces into the grand puzzle of how our solar system formed and evolved — and perhaps how others do as well.

Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour 84 (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors) Abridged 3/3

Dr Kiki’s Science Hour 84 (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors) Abridged 3/3 I’ve tried to leave the core points and edit out all the fluff as most people do not have the attention span to make it through the entire hour. The key points are: * We built and ran prototype Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTR) a form of molten salt reactor during the 60’s. We have built LFTRs before. * Alvin Weinberg the man who invented and held the patents for our existing light water reactors (LWR) spent the rest of his career advocating the use of LFTR technology for it’s safety and other advantages over LWR technology. Eventually he was fired for this advocacy even though he invented the LWR. * Once the development of a full scale LFTR design is completed and mass production started we expect a LFTR would be much cheaper to produce than a Light Water Reactor (LWR) we use today. The fuel to run a LFTR would be much more abundant and vastly cheaper than the uranium fuel used in today’s light water reactors. * There is 4 times as much thorium as uranium on the planet, and we have thousands of years worth of thorium fuel available just in the USA. It is a waste product from neodymium rare earth mining. Some mines produce enough thorium as waste to meet the power demands of the entire earth for a year, in just one year of mining for neodymium. * Existing LWRs use less than 1% of the mined uranium as fuel, what can’t be used for fuel is depleted uranium or radioactive waste.

Gulf oil spill BOP Flange Hiccup!! Its more than little ears and rough edges BP is trying to cut from the BOP Flange. There is a pretty large steel “tab” they now need to cut off. It should be a minor setback at most and most say that it should actually have been expected by BP. How well BP is able to remove the tab could possibly effect the amount of oil that BP can capture. Inaccurate title or description? Post a comment and I will fix it. Follow live blogging of this event blog.alexanderhiggins.com Watch it live here: blog.alexanderhiggins.com

Science Saved My Soul From Religion

Seeing isn’t everything and I truly hope that one day mankind will wake up in the morning, at the sunrise of the two stars of Alpha Centauri :) .. but for that we do not need religion and differences of opinion that it generates. “Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.” Carl Sagan Credits go to Philhellenes www.youtube.com

Bill Nye “the Science Guy” Explains Oil Leak on Fox News

Bill Nye “the Science Guy” explains in simple terms on FOX News how the “Top Kill” method should be able to successfully fix the oil leak in the Gulf Coast.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

“It’s absolutely a human rights crime,” says Mac McClelland of the ongoing disaster on the Gulf Coast, where oil from BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig continues to gush into the water despite multiple attempts to plug the leak. Attorney General Eric Holder has announced a criminal investigation into the circumstances surrounding the spill, as BP announced that it was done trying to plug the leak. All the cute code names (“top hat,” “top kill”) in the world haven’t been able to stop the crisis, which in addition to killing 11 workers in the initial explosion, has shut down huge portions of the Gulf to fishing and other industries while devastating the wildlife. McClelland, Mother Jones’s human rights reporter, has been on the ground on the Gulf Coast and sending frequent updates to her Twitter and to the magazine’s website, and she joins us via Skype to give us a view from the ground.
