Radioactive Material -- Lost or Stolen Almost on a Daily Basis

stock here: maybe we should use less of this stuff, it cannot be controlled.

Keep in mind, when things go wrong, they are usually covered up, so this list is what they admit.

  1. None of these locations are at commercial nuclear plants. Most are industrial NDA sites and drumroll....hospitals. Welcome to my world.

    2. Industrial espionage happens in many industries with more sore consequences.

      Btw i e been back reading ratfarm diatribe.

      The worlds wxperts in criticality which btw doesn't include Fundersen, have weighed in on your theory. U3 was not a PC. You have no forensic evidence. Im completing international studies on excursions and what has Gundersen done. He has no credibiliry in this specialty.

    3. Repeat after me....the nukists have NO FORENSIC EVIDENCE to prove that Reactor 3 was NOT a criticality
