us restarts nuclear testing facility in idaho after 23 years

U.S. officials have restarted an Idaho nuclear fuel testing facility amid efforts to boost the nation's nuclear power generating capacity.
The U.S. Department of Energy says the facility at the Idaho National Laboratory began operating Tuesday for the first time since it went on standby in 1994.The Energy Department proposed resuming operations at the Transient Reactor Test Facility in 2013 as part of former President Barack Obama's plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by generating carbon-free electricity with nuclear power.Officials say testing on new types of fuels at the facility will help scientists increase the performance and safety of nuclear reactors already in operation and those yet to be built.Nuclear energy produces about 19 percent of the nation's energy.

ludlam, not australia, in new york for nuclear weapons ban treaty talks

Greens Senator Scott Ludlam has slammed Australia for not taking part in talks on a global ban on nuclear weapons. Senator Ludlam is in New York with delegates from 120 countries to discuss a treaty to ban nuclear weapons around the world.He said Australia could have played a vital role in negotiations, but instead chose not to be involved.“The Australian role has been disgraceful,” he told the ABC’s Lateline program.“Australian diplomats were instructed, first under Prime Minister Abbott and then Prime Minister Turnbull, to try and obstruct or break up the talks, try to prevent this process from happening at all. Now this process is under way.”RelatedThe government has got 'amnesia' when it comes to Australia’s dark nuclear testing historyFirst Nations people affected by nuclear testing i

testing of russia's 'texas-killing' nuclear missile delayed, again

Testing of Russia’s newest intercontinental nuclear missile, the RS-28 Sarmat, has been delayed to later this year, an unidentified source in Russia’s defense industry was quoted by the TASS news agency as saying on March 23. It is the latest in a series of delays that suggest Russia is struggling to modernize aspects of its nuclear forces. Testing was reported to begin in late 2016, but was moved to March 2017. Now, according to the source, it won’t happen till later this year. “[Silo launch] testing of the Sarmat from the Plesetsk launch facility in March won’t happen,” the source was quoted as saying. “It has been shifted back to the second quarter of 2017, likely in April.”Sarmat is Russia’s newest nuclear missile design, and when completed will be the heaviest weapon of its kind to ev

abbott urges government to consider nuclear submarines

The former prime minister says "the nuclear no-go mindset is probably the biggest regret I have".

experts: north korea may have damaged nuclear testing site

(SEOUL) — A series of tremors and landslides near North Korea's nuclear test base likely mean the country's sixth and largest blast has destabilized the region, and the Punggye-ri nuclear site may not be used for much longer to test nuclear weapons, experts say.A small quake was detected early on Friday near the North's nuclear test site, South Korea's weather agency said, but unlike quakes associated with nuclear tests, it did not appear to be manmade. The tremor was the latest in a string of at least three shocks to be observed since Pyongyang's Sept. 3 nuclear test, which caused a 6.3 magnitude earthquake.Friday's quake was a magnitude 2.7 with a depth of 3 km in North Hamgyong Province in North Korea, the Korea Meteorological Administration said.

global nuclear giants go bust, should india celebrate?

The global nuclear industry is going through a virtual meltdown on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This is happening even as India is investing heavily in nuclear energy. This collapse of atomic giants offers New Delhi a new opportunity and many in the Indian atomic establishment are silently celebrating this premature death of suitors who were wooing to put tens of atomic plants in India estimated to cost at least USD 150 billion."This atomic meltdown is a blessing in disguise" was how a top government official described the unfolding scenario. In addition, in these changed circumstances, if the Indian private industry plays its cards right, it could also provide an opportunity to the country to become a hub for low cost suppliers of nuclear technology. A little far-fetched but who know

north korea nuclear tests could change geology

The North Korean mountain used for the underground testing of nuclear weapons might be suffering from “tired mountain syndrome,” according to experts studying satellite photos of the test site.“Tired mountain syndrome” is the name for increased fractures and permeability in the surrounding rock, caused by multiple underground nuclear tests. Mount Mantap is a 7,200-foot-high peak in the north of the country, which scientists say “visibly shifted” during North Korea’s most recent detonation on Sept. 3.During that test, an 85-acre area on the mountain was observed to visibly subside, and landslides were reported shortly after. Three small earthquakes have been detected near the Punggye-ri test site since the last test, in an area not known for seismic activity.But experts Frank Pabian and Jac
