Cosmic radiation is a well-known cause of single-event upsets (SEU) or disruption to electrical circuits in electronic devices. It most commonly occurs and is reported for devices such as laptop computers, cell phones, and personal digital assistants. We report on 3 patients with implantable cardiverter-defibrilators (ICDs) who experienced SEUs during air travel that may be attributed to exposure to cosmic radiation while on commercial airline flights. These cases highlight the significant impact of SEUs on ICDs and patient clinical outcomes and the need for further recognition and study of th... More →

Index / Mining & Minerals - Evaluations / Off-World Exploration, Mining, & Technology

Mike Wall opined in 2015 that asteroid mining could shift from sci-fi to world-changing reality soon. Planetary Resources deployed its first spacecraft from the International Space Station last month, and the Washington-based asteroid-mining company aims to launch a series of increasingly ambitious and capable probes over the next few years.

The goal is to begin transforming asteroid water into rocket fuel within a decade, and eventually to harvest valuable and useful platinum-group metals from space rocks. They have every expectation that delivering water from asteroids and creatin... More →

Sam Moorhouse blogs that the concept of asteroid mining is very much on-trend. Through sustained advances in technology provides access to the riches hosted by asteroids, such efforts have now moved from far-fetched lunacy to plausible concepts. This short editorial considers asteroid mining within the realms of traditional mining feasibility assessments.

Mining feasibility is a process which itself has undergone repeated refinement over the last few decades culminating in a widely accepted and formalized process that now, by-and-large, aligns all mineral deposit evaluations (altho... More →

CORESafety is based on 20 modules and timelines developed by mine safety professionals specifically for U.S. mining. The goal is to achieve zero fatalities and a 50 percent reduction in the rate of injuries within five years (0:50:5).

CORESafety provides a common roadmap and a common language for all mining companies to achieve the 0:50:5 objective, and is designed to be integrated into your company unique operations, management structure and culture.

This video provides a quick look at each of the 20 CORESafety modules ...... More →

Bobby Magill opines that the U.S. is expected to reach a major carbon emissions milestone this year. For the first time, CO2 emissions from burning natural gas for electricity in the U.S. are set to surpass those from burning coal, the globe chief climate polluter. Emissions from burning natural gas are expected to be 10% greater than those from coal in 2016, as electric companies rely more on power plants that run on natural gas than those that run on coal, according to U.S. DOE data.

The EIA expects the U.S. will emit about 1.5 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide from natural ga... More →

Elon Musk reports that by talking about the SpaceX Mars architecture, he wants to make Mars seem possible, make it seem as though it is something that we can do in our lifetime. He thinks there are really two fundamental paths. History is going to bifurcate along two directions. One path is where we stay on Earth forever, and then there will be some eventual extinction event. He does not have an immediate doomsday prophecy, but eventually, history suggests, there will be some doomsday event. The alternative is to become a space-bearing civilization and a multi-planetary species, which he hopes... More →

Michael Alkin, the founder of The Stock Catalyst Report, presents a video on the state of uranium based on nearly 20 years in the hedge-fund industry. He worked for a few multi-billion dollar hedge funds. During his career, he has been an analyst, portfolio manager and partner. He has also been a dedicated short-seller, managed both a long and short portfolio and at times have been responsible for several hundred million dollars of capital.

His investing career has taken him to many countries searching for mispriced stocks. He has invested in microcaps to mega caps, across myriad ... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry

Dr. Conca also just reported that natural gas, the darling energy industry, has decided it needs to attack its biggest competitor, nuclear power. The American Petroleum Institute has flooded the airwaves in Ohio and Pennsylvania with anti-nuke commercials and has even drawn in AARP by pushing fear, fear of higher prices and fear of radiation. Just the opposite of what is true.

This is ironic since the natural gas industry emits more radioactivity than all of nuclear in America combined (as radium scale is gas and oil piping i.e., NORM). And more people die every year from natural ga... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry

Dr. Conca reports that the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment passed draft nuclear waste legislation, the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 2017. The bill would be the first changes in 30 years to the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 since its 1987 Amendment that codified into law the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository in Nevada.

But lots of activity led up to that point. First off, on Monday of last week, Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky announced he was signing a bill, SB11, to lift the nuclear moratorium in the state, clearing the way for... More →

David Stanway reports that China is betting on new, small-scale nuclear reactor designs (SMRs)that could be used in isolated regions, on ships and even aircraft as part of an ambitious plan to wrest control of the global nuclear market. Within weeks, state-owned China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) is set to launch a small modular reactor (SMR) dubbed the Nimble Dragon with a pilot plant on the island province of Hainan, according to company officials.

Unlike new large scale reactors that cost upward of $10 billion per unit and need large safety zones, SMRs create less toxic wa... More →
