Safety of Fukushima waste water focus of sea release debate

Safety of Fukushima waste water focus of sea release debate

Technology
OKUMA, Japan -- Inside a giant decontamination facility at the destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant, workers in hazmat suits monitor radioactive water pumped from three damaged reactors, making sure it's adequately — though not completely — treated. Three lines of equipment connected to pipes snaking around in this dimly lit, sprawling facility can process up to 750 tons of contaminated water a day. Four other lines elsewhere in the plant can process more. From there, the water is pumped to a complex of about 1,000 temporary storage tanks that crowd the plant's grounds, where additional tanks are still being built. Officials say the huge tanks will be completely full by the summer of 2022. The decontamination process, which The Associated Press viewed on a recent tour, is a key elemen

Scientists pinpoint release of energy that powered series of solar flares

Scientists pinpoint release of energy that powered series of solar flares

Science
Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Scientists have precisely pinpointed the explosive release of energy that powered a series of solar flares -- a first. The solar flares were originally recorded in 2017 by the Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array, EOVSA, a radio telescope operated by the New Jersey Institute of Technology. While studying solar activity, the radio telescope spotted the birth of a new region of magnetic energy adjacent to an existing sunspot. The explosion of energy sent extremely hot plasma spewing from the solar atmosphere out into space. Recently, scientists reexamined the data collected by the EOVSA, looking for unique patterns recorded in microwave spectrum. Until now, scientists have only been able to study solar flares by examining the electromagnetic signatures registered at the phot...
