The citation is gives (http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/astute/) says nothing about 25 years life cycle. So it would seem the citation is wrong?


Now looking for the "Radioactive Uranium, the size of your fist" reference.

Edit: just to add to that about nuclear submarines and its comparison to civilian nuclear power plant. The nuclear submarines use uraniums that has been enriched to weapon's grade level with ~90%, as opposed to commercial power plants which are usually ~5% enriched uranium. To top it off nuclear reactor design in submarines are top secret stuff and small scale (300-400MW) and works nothing like civilian power plants. So I would say the comparison is not an appropriate.

Also looking for reference on "2/3 KG of fusion-able material will run a 1000 MW power plant for more than a year".

Don't get me wrong, I am interested in learning. Preferably with good source when seeing crazy numbers.
I was referring to the "Fist size and 25 years" from a documentary on nuclear submarines I watched on National Geographic. The program is called "Big Bigger Biggest" and that particular episode dealt with evolution of submarines. You will probably find it on youtube.

You are correct that it is weapons grade Uranium (extremely pure)....

oi oi Simone could be thinking of Urea fertilizer, like we have Ashugonj Urea Fertilizer Factory, Chittagong Urea Fertilizer Co. etc?? I once ate a little bit of Urea fertilizer as a kid, mistook it as sugar granules, but nothing happened to me, but DO NOT DO IT....I also used to eat distemper/paint chips from the wall in Dhaka back in the 70's and lead pencil etc. I lost something but still making it...but DO NOT DO IT like I did, it will be harmful to your brain.

We are also supposed to have a huge reserve of oil, as is the talks on the street.

Anyway, who'se coming to get this uraniums ?
Reliance Mining or Sahara matribhumi ?
I know our ministers would be to shy to ask for profit sharing, apparently it is beyadobi to ask thy neighbors for using our resources.
Very true..
