One of the big debates lately is over #nuclear energy.

Some say it's necessary for #NetZero by 2050.

Others say it's not net-positive for the #environment.

So are smaller reactors☢️a good alternative?🤝
Small Modular Reactors (#SMR )promise to bring a 'modular', more adaptable solution.

Build for a very specific purpose?
👉+1 SMR
Need to scale up for the grid?
👉+10 SMRs (SMR Farm)
Need to ramp down because #fusion finally arrived?
👉 -1 SMR per year
Micro-reactors promise to bring portable nuclear using #SpaceX tech.

👉Fits in a container, hauled by truck/ship
👉Perfect for off-grid emergencies
👉Swallow the diesel generator market
👉Doesn't need refuelling for >10 years
👉Made in Assembly Line
👉Less fuel=safe

🧵English translation of an extremely important and interesting article written by Gen. #Zaluzhny (Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine) and Lt. Gen. Zabrodskyi "Prospects for securing the military campaign of 2023: the Ukrainian view":…
HOW LONG CAN THIS WAR LAST & HOW CAN WE WIN IT: Today the absolute majority of military experts & analysts agree that
the full-scale war unleashed by the russian federation against Ukraine on 02-24-2022,
has long exceeded the concept of a local conflict of medium intensity. ⬇️ Image
This applies to the spatial indicators, the number of involved military forces, and the impressive list of weapons and other
high-tech equipment whose usage is characteristic of this military confrontation.⬇️

1/ Today is important for #Zaporizhzhia #Zaporozhye #ZaporozhyeNPP #Zaporijia @iaeaorg is heading to the Nuclear central power station...
but already several problems are noticed by head IAEA representants as Russians seems to deny them access to the station... Image
2/ JUST IN: #Russia’s Defence Ministry Claims (lol) #Ukrainian assault troops would have attempted to seize the Ru-controlled #Zaporizhzhia NPP ahead of a planned International Atomic Energy Agency visit to the nuclear plant today. (oh and how come? swimming to the central?) Image
3/ they claim that "60 saboteurs" have tried to size entire station protected by 500 men !! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 i'm sure they have all the videos then as might have killed or captured all of them.. (being sarcastic)
#Zaporizhzhia NPP is exactly the kind of subject #Putin loves to play with.

Yesterday Russia disconnected Europe's
largest NPP from the grid while it was running hot. They bet a massive meltdown against the chance that some corrupt Russian had not looted some critical part that would keep the backup power from coming online to provide cooling. This was
easily the most insane nuclear stunt of my lifetime. Tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of people and two continents were put under the gun for a stunt. The whole situation there just screams gross negligence on a planetary scale. From the fighting to seize the plant to using it
as a giant ammo dump where any accident could unleash radioactive clouds to deliberately shelling their own positions to generate a false flag operation to yesterdays cooling power stunt all against a backdrop of Russia refusing to let plant workers do their jobs unmolested or

A containment building of a #NuclearPowerPlant is a thick structure design to resist earthquakes, overpressure and hurricane winds.🌪

But, have you ever wonder what would happen if a jet crashed into it? Let’s find out together 🛩 Image
Lucky for us, @SandiaLabs solved this question way back in 1988.

They launched a supersonic jet against a concrete wall to test its resistance. 🤯 Crazy, right? BUT, to our surprise, it only caused cracks of 60mm deep in the concrete.…
Ok, but that was a test. What about now?🤔

As part of the probabilistic risk analysis done for the #NPPs, the risk of a jet ACCIDENTALLY striking a plant is considered, but NOT an intentional attack.

Let’s ask the experts about the risk of an impact in a Containment Building👇🏻

I ask you to pray very much that the Lord will save and prevent this catastrophe. Russian troops are shelling the nuclear power plant right now…
As a result of the uninterrupted shelling of the enemy, the block of the largest nuclear power plant in Europe fell Zaporizka Atomic Station!!
Please pray!

Ho letto che in alcune farmacie in Belgio sono terminate le pastiglie di Iodio, a causa della paura di un conflitto nucleare/esplosioni nucleari.
Chiariamo un paio di concetti:
Un thread chiarificatore:
Perche si usa lo iodio in caso di contaminazione nucleare? Uno degli isotopi radioattivi prodotti durante un disastro nucleare è lo IODIO-131, una versione radioattiva e quindi dannosa di quello che troviamo in natura ed in alcuni cibi.
Se entriamo in contatto con questo isotopo IODIO-131 verrà accumulato nella tiroide, che usa appunto lo iodio per produrre certi ormoni. Cosa succede se abbiamo una sostanza radioattiva nel corpo? Sviluppiamo un tumore e stiamo molto male.

BREAKING - The 3d reactor of the Zaporizha Nuclear Power Plant disconnected from the energy system of #Ukraine. as a safety precaution. Only the 4th out of 6 reactors continues to generate electicity. No more fire at the station.
[2] The #Russian Army, which is currently blocking the roads around the #Zaporizhzha #nuclearpowerplant, allowed #Ukrainian firefighters from #Energodar city nearby to enter the power plant and do their work.
[3] The director of the #Zaporizhzha #nuclearpowerplant is in charge and assured the province governor that there's no radiation leak / contamination. The levels of #radiation within the plant are within the norm as usual. #Ukraine

There are others who have feeds of up-to-date news coming out of #Ukraine. This is not one of those #threads. I am building up a thread of reports of potential #warcrimes (regardless of which side is allegedly to have committed them) so that there is a record for the future.

Lots of reporting by journalists full of empathy for #Ukraine. Yet, some hard Western national interest issues remain under the radar screen:
1. Europe's largest #NuclearPowerPlant at Zaporizhzhia in South-East Ukraine is now very close to the combat zone.…
2. Its six reactors provide electricity for large parts of Ukraine, and cannot be switched off. They need a functioning personnel support and infrastructure. Otherwise their operation becomes risky.
3. #Ukraine has ca. 40 million inhabitants. If electricity, heating, water supply, etc. stop working, those who can will run westwards. How exactly is the EU going to distribute and deal with millions of such #refugees?

Targets include airfields and military headquarters, operational command says
"Distant crumps - soft explosions - reported from west Kyiv, towards the airport. Not Cruise missiles, i think, but sounds like an attack on the airport." @JohnSweeney

1/4: This could be the preparation of a military escalation in southern #Ukraine that would transform the Ukrainian-Russian conflict from a Russian "delegated inter-state #war" (@HauterJakob) into an ordinary inter-state war between the two countries.…
2/4: After a successful Russian court trial, the #Kremlin would claim to have the legal right to receive fresh water from the #Dnipro river (which starts in #Russia). Kyiv would not respect such a Russian court decision.
3/4: #Russia could invade southern mainland Ukraine to implement a respective court order and try to capture the now dry #NorthCrimeanCanal from the Dnipro to #Crimea. This would mean the first, from Moscow's side, official employment of regular Russian troops in dryland Ukraine.

1/3: If the below and similar news from Crimea are true, the peninsula is turning into a time bomb. If the fresh water supply on #Crimea declines further, the #Kremlin may, at some point, see no other way out than to also invade southern mainland #Ukraine.…
2/3: Russian troops could enter Ukrainian dryland to conquer the #NorthCrimeaCanal up to the #Dnipro. Moscow would be justifying such new occupation with a need to bring fresh water from #Ukraine's river down to the peninsula. Dnipro water may as a result never arrive on Crimea.
3/3: Yet, a war in southern #Ukraine could serve the #Kremlin as a distraction of #Russia's populations from Moscow's post-2014 infrastructural failures on #Crimea. Such a new war would be happening a few dozen miles away from Europe's largest #nuclearpowerplant in #Zaporizhzhia.

#Japan #Onagawa #Miyagi #NuclearPowerPlant #TohokuEarthquake

Local governments in Miyagi Prefecture are reaching approval for the proposed restart of the Onagawa nuclear power plant No. 2 reactor. During the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami,
the reactor was destroyed. It will be the first reactor to restart after a natural disaster had caused damage. Before the reactor can go back online, Tohoku Electric Power Co. will also need to complete various safety measures. It is now planned to be operational again in 2023,
following the building of a 29-metre-high seawall to shield the plant from tsunamis. About 130 kilometers from the epicenter of the earthquake and tsunami in the east of Japan, the nuclear plant is located.
