Where do all the radioactive particles go?

 

Where have all the radioactive particles gone
Long time passing
Where have all the radioactive particles gone
Long time ago
Where have all the radioactive particles gone
Young girls pick them, every one
Oh, when will they ever learn
Oh, when will they ever learn


Where have all the young girls gone
Long time passing

Where have all the young girls gone
Gone for husbands, every one
Oh, when will they ever learn

Gone for soldiers, every one

Where have all the soldiers gone
Gone to graveyards, every one
Oh, when will they ever learn

"The lightsaber does need an external power pack."

 

In the Star Wars EU books, it is established that in the past lightsabers did indeed require external power packs.

 

Excuse me, I have to go write some texts which will become the basis of Jedi philosophy....

Do you mean the tritium (hydrogen-3)? It's probably tied up in water molecules (heavy water), and then diluted by the other seawater. Tritium is naturally found in the environment in small quantities, and tends to get processed out of the body fairly rapidly. It has a half-life of about 12.3 years, and the decay produces beta radiation.

 

 It's used in some luminescent markers for watches and gun sights.

Japan to release over one million tonnes of Fukushima's contaminated water into sea

 

Any such release is expected to take at around two years to prepare, as the site's irradiated water first needs to pass through a filtration process before it can be further diluted with seawater and finally released into the ocean.

 

In 2018, Tokyo Electric apologised after admitting its filtration systems had not removed all dangerous material from the water

 

It plans to remove all radioactive particles from the water except tritium, an isotope of hydrogen that is hard to separate and is considered to be relatively harmless.

 

It is common practice for nuclear plants around the world to release water that contain traces of tritium into the ocean.

I'm betting a lot of Japanese hearing this news are having visions of Shin Gojira right now... :fear:

Tritium is supposedly one of the most expensive substances in the world (roughly $30,000 per gram is the number you see repeated on the internet).

 

It must be extremely expensive to remove if it isn't worth it to even try.

Kaiju are higher on the food chain.

 

We are their food.

Tritium is hydrogen with two extra neutrons.  Once it's part of a water molecule mixed in with regular water I don't even know how you'd separate it out.

It just goes to show that fundamental changes to any system, however well-intentioned, can have unanticipated consequences. People tend to want a quick, simple fix, but there are very few magic bullets in life.

I've personally thought that the problem with long wait times before trials should be fixed with more courts, judges, and quicker prosecutions.

 

Very little of the wait time is because of the need to investigate or to prepare defenses.
