Struggling to provide unfiltered information from (((Mainstream Media))), we have already written about how we support, and we strongly support it, anything positive on Nuclear Energy.
Nuclear Energy is clean energy, green, economic, but especially it’s very important because it produces isotopes used in various type of treatments to fight cancer forms.
Most of people are scared of Radioactivity, this is due to the vulgar information level of worldwide press, but…
Radioactivity is everywhere, even in the food, humans live with it since the sunrise of life on this planet.
There is nothing to be afraid, rather opposite, humankind has to embrace this energy and think for a positive future empty from coal-fired power plants and an unnecessary recourse to alternative energies which proves to be less productive, useful only to “cluttering” our environment like with the typical disgusting views of wind turbines over hills and green fields, or unused expanses photovoltaic panels left to rot here and there.
2 Billions of years ago nuclear explosions were also produced by natural fission processes.
Hence Nuclear Energy is closely linked to the birth of life and not to its extinction.

“After more studies, including on-site examinations, they discovered that the uranium ore had gone through fission on its own,” said Ludovic Ferrière, curator of the rock collection at Vienna’s Natural History Museum, where a part of the curious rock will be presented to the public in 2019. “There was no other explanation.”
For such a phenomenon to have happened naturally, these uranium deposits in western Equatorial Africa must have had to contain a critical mass of U-235 to start the reaction. Back in those days, they did.
A second contributing factor was that, for a nuclear chain reaction to happen and be maintained, there needed to be a moderator. In this case: water. Without water to slow the neutrons down, controlled fission would not have been possible. The atoms would simply not have split.
“Like in a man-made light-water nuclear reactor, the fission reactions, without anything to slow down the neutrons, to moderate them, simply stop,” said Peter Woods, team leader in charge of uranium production at the IAEA. “The water acted in Oklo as a moderator, absorbing the neutrons, controlling the chain reaction.”
The specific geological context in what today is Gabon also helped. The chemical concentrations of total uranium (including U-235) were high enough, and the individual deposits thick and large enough. And, lastly, Oklo managed to survive the passing of time. Experts suspect there may have been other such natural reactors in the world, but these must have been destroyed by geological processes, eroded away or subducted — or simply not yet found.
“That’s what makes it so fascinating: that the circumstances of time, geology, water came together for this to happen at all,” Woods said. “And that it was preserved until today. The detective story has been successfully solved.”
