(JTA) — Researchers in Israel said they have succeeded in cultivating commercially desert truffles whose market price reaches $120 per pound — slightly less than the cost of silver and four times that of uranium. The researchers from the Ramat HaNegev Desert Agriculture Center in Israel's south made a ...
The debris, which included uranium, caesium and technetium, was discovered in the nuclear exclusion zone, several kilometers from the epicenter of the disaster at the Fukushima plant. Two locations were paddy oils, and an abandoned aquaculture center. Uranium itself has a half-life of 4.5 billion years.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated a technique that can determine whether bricks -- the common building material -- have ever been near a radiological source, and identify the specific type of source, such as high enriched uranium or plutonium. The technique is possible ...
Most sapient Americans—those who are skeptical of the mainstream media—know the outrageous but largely unreported story that Bill and Hillary Clinton, with the help of Obama officials and over congressional experts' objections, allowed Russia to gain control of 20 percent of America's uranium supplies ...

But it's also similar to the story of uranium, the radioactive mineral that serves as a raw material for manufacturing fuel for nuclear power plants and the explosive cores of nuclear weapons. The key difference: Although coal companies have pushed for reduced regulation, representatives of uranium mining ...
Autonomous robots equipped with disc-collimated radiation sensors are set to carry out inspections for uranium deposits at a former uranium enrichment plant in the US. Developed by Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute, the pair of robots will manoeuvre through miles of pipes at the US ...
Scientists found an enriched uranium particle over the Aleutian Islands and don't know where it came from. In 20 years of aerial surveys, it's the first time researchers have detected a particle like this. It's not naturally occurring uranium – it's the kind that might be found in nuclear bombs or fuel. Dan Murphy ...
Uranium – the raw material for nuclear power and nuclear weapons – is having a moment in the spotlight. Companies such as Energy Fuels, Inc. have played well-publicized roles in lobbying the Trump administration to reduce federal protection for public lands with uranium deposits. The Defense ...
