“Low-background metals are valuable because they carry particularly low levels of radiation. Used as shielding in advanced particle physics projects and medical science devices like X-ray chambers, these metals won’t interfere with specialized, highly radiation-sensitive tools.”
2/“Most steel is made by blowing air or pure O2 into molten pig iron to remove impurities & make it stronger. Since start of atmospheric nuclear tests, all air-even purified O2, contains elevated levels of isotopes like cobalt-60,most new steel is infused w/radioactive particles.

THREAD Re. today's expected flood of "Dear #Tito" tweets:
#OTD 25 May, is birth anniversary of former #Yugoslavia leader Josip Broz Tito. Many call it his #birthday although he has been dead for 43 yrs. I do not wish to rain on their parade, merely offer my own and my family's /2 ImageImage
THREAD to clarify, question in a PM: we were a normal & pretty ordinary non-Communist family. Not (openly) anti-Communist but not collaborating with the regime in any political capacitiy. Both my grandfathers were opposed to the idea of #Yugoslavia - they realized it may have /2 ImageImageImageImage

Lets list in my opinion the worst decisions taken or nearly taken by largest navies around the world. #εpsilon Image
The #USNavy #Zumwaltclass destroyers were supposed to have #AGS capable of firing ultra long range 155mm shells, have no shells as they were canceled. Now, to re-add the X-factor the #USN is replacing AGS guns with VLS for upto 12 hypersonic missiles. Costing a lot of $$$$$$$$$s Image
Once the greatest #Navy on Earth, decided it was too great and powerful to have a ship mounted AShM. The #Brits decided #RoyalNavy could retire its #Harpoons without procuring a replacement anytime soon. Luckily , it didnt happen. This is why I feel #UK will cause #AUKUS to fail? Image

Warum die BW zu viele Generale/Admirale hat.

Der Ursprungsthread war ja mit einem Hauch Sarkasmus versehen. Aufgabe: Gib ein Statement was triggered!

So ganz grob zusammengefasst.

Hat geklappt. Ein paar meiner Lieblings-HUT sprangen drauf an.

Du kannst ja MC nicht mit BW vergleichen - dies, das. 2/n

Sicherlich hinkt der Vergleich. Die Aufgaben und auch die Fähigkeiten sind nicht gleich. Lediglich der Personalkörper ist von der Gesamtstärke vergleichbar. Und das ist ja schonmal was. Denn ganz egal ob wir uns mit LV/BV befassen oder mit Expeditionary warfare, es 3/n

As Richard Poe says, 'George Washington referred to the original 13 states as an empire... New YORK is called the empire state'…
George Washington in a 1785 letter to James Duane, NYC Mayor, called New York "the Seat of the Empire". Washington is said to have used the phrase"Pathway to Empire"when referring to the state in conversation w/ George Clinton, the NY Governor in the 1790s…
James Duane was born in 1733, in NYC, in the Province of New York, to Anthony Duane and his second wife, Althea Ketaltas. Anthony Duane was a Protestant Irishman from County Galway who first came to New York as an officer of the Royal Navy in 1698..

⭐️Seymour Hersh interview with Fabian Scheidler for the Berliner Zeitung

⭐️Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has published an investigation about attacks on the Nord Stream pipelines by US and Norway

1. Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has published an investigation showing that the attacks on the #NordStream pipelines were initiated by the US government with the support of Norway. The #US government and the #CIA have denied his account at Hersh's request. https://seymourhersh.substa...
2. Q1. Mr. Hersh, please explain your findings in detail. According to your source, what exactly happened, who was involved in the #NordStream attack and what were the motives?
Seymour Hersch: - It was a story that cried out to be told. At the end of September 2022,

The Swedish silent service is on quite a visible PR-campaign in Finnish media. First we had a surprisingly long article dealing with a well-publicised exercise from last spring when the Swedish submarine #HMSUppland visited the waters around #Hanko.…
Some nice pictures from the event. The Finnish #Navy is getting more serious about hunting submarines following the #Hamina-class MLU, and getting a suitable 'target' to train on is key.
Then we got articles in both Swedish and Finnish from a visit by Finnish media to the yard currently building leadship #HMSBlekinge of the #A26-class. No denying @SaabFi likely has other thoughts than just showing off their shipyard in arranging this 😉

Does the following United States ship design look familiar?

It should because it's HMS Hood!

Hood had a profound impact on the United States Navy. In many ways, the arrival of Hood served as the catalyst for the eventual break away from the Standard Battleship doctrine. Image
The US Navy saw that the combination of firepower, armor, and speed would set the groundwork for new "Fast Battleships" (Or "Battleship-cruisers" as they were known in the US at the time). This would provide greater flexibility over the current generation of 21 knot battleships. Image
This spurred a flurry of activity among designers in the US Navy. New designs such as faster battleships, traditional battlecruisers, and hybrid battleship-cruisers were created. The pros and cons of each vessel were then vigorously weighed among senior naval officials. Image

#ships #navy #WWII #USNavy - Let's tour IJN Yamato, WWII's most impressive battleship.↖️Yamato on trials, 1941. ↗️Yamato's original config from….↙️Yamato after 1944-1945 refit from Tamiya. ↘️ Yamato's death, April 7, 1945. 1/ ImageImageImageImage
2/ Yamato, her sisters Musashi and Shinano (completed* as an aircraft carrier) were WWII's three mightiest vessels. Yamato's main armament was 9 x 18.1"/45 guns. 45 calibers = 67' 10" long! Here is a stern view focused on Yamato's #3 turret on Sept. 20, 1941 during construction. Image
3/ Yamato's secondary armament was 4 x triple 15.5 cm (6.1")/60 guns arranged in a diamond formation: front, back and one per side. They were removed from Japan's Mogami-class↘… light cruisers when the Mogamis were upgraded to new twin 8" gun turrets. ImageImageImageImage

The impact marine #drone, which was found near #Sevastopol, could be assembled from a jet ski - U.S. #Navy Institute

Analysis of photos of the device led researchers to believe that it was based on watercraft from the #Canadian company Sea-Doo. Image
The USNI speculates that the craft was propelled by water jets capable of speeds of up to 110 km/h. And the power plant was probably a Rotax gasoline engine.

The #detonators in the nose of the drone are similar to those used in the #Soviet FAB-500 aerial bomb.
The USNI compares the device to other examples of the use of maritime kamikaze drones. The essential difference is that until now various types of boats or motor boats were the basis of such weapons. The dimensions of such drones made it easier to detect them. On the other hand

Local sources report that one of the Russian Navy's main warehouses has been set on fire.

Arsenal No. 6, is located near the village of Burmakino, Yaroslavl Oblast. This is one of the most important warehouses owned by the Ministry of Defense.

#Russia #Ukraine #Navy
@CovertShores Update:

Local sources are now reporting that the fire was caused by the 'accidental detonation of an S-300 missile'.

#Russia #Ukraine
Confirmed: the local area has been completely evacuated.

This response to the fire would suggest that the damage caused is significant or that further explosions may occur.

@USN_Submariner @CovertShores @submarines4ever @RLitwiller 3/ I only toured Clamagore once. It's by the #WW2 / #ColdWar aircraft carrier CV-10 Yorktown. As we approach, note the smaller sail of USS Drum (top), which Clamagore would have resembled as first built in 1945 and the GUPPY III conversion sail (bottom).

Glad to support @nakashimae & @catecadell's exposé @WashPost.

Ships adding up—

"#China’s #navy is already the world’s largest by #s of vessels. The @USNavy has 297 battle-force ships..according to @CRS4Congress, while China has 355 & is projected to have 460 by 2030, according to last year’s @DeptofDefense report."…
But, said Andrew Erickson, research director of the @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute @NavalWarCollege, “as impressive as those numbers are, without a significant network of robust overseas facilities, their ability to use them falls off rapidly w distance from China.” #Ream #Base
