Finally got around to rewatching the dark crystal after more than 2 decades.
Realised that Kiras "fantasy" language is a Jugoslavian dialect, understood almost every word of it. Since I know that it was originally planned to dubb the entire film with a fantasy language and add subtitles, it makes me wonder if they intended to do the entire thing in Dobardanski... :lol:
Ah! Never read it, but I heard it was pretty good. The movie... not so much.
Let's restart Chernobyl
Are you volunteering?
As far as I know; units 1 and 3 are viable, but way out of date. The cost of a restart plus updating the safety systems are pretty high.
I don't know. Could an RMBK even be updated to modern safety standards? I assume that the RMBKs still operating are more just grandfathered in than actually running on a design that could get a permit for construction, even in Russia, today.
Surely if a reactor cannot explode it needs no explosion proofing. Well, yeah, if.......the core collapses and forms a critical mass, then we can forget about negative void/power/whatever coefficient.
If a reactor is physically incapable of providing the energy, then steam is incapable of boiling violently and Chernobyl is incapable of exploding. You know, like a bomb that doesn't work.
