The Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter (Jimo) is part of an ambitious mission to explore the three planet-sized Jovian moons Callisto, Ganymede and Europa. Designing the spacecraft poses a significant engineering challenge given the long distances involved. Controversially, the probe is to be powered by a nuclear propulsion system. Callisto, Ganymede and Europa are thought to harbour oceans of probable water beneath an icy crust. Jimo would be the...

E. Coli does more than just make people sick — it can also be used to clean up nuclear waste, according to researchers at Birmingham University. The research team found that E. Coli bacteria effectively breaks down phytic acid (a phosphate storage material found in seeds) and releases the phosphate molecules, which bind to uranium to create a uranium phosphate precipitate. The precipitate can be harvested to recover uranium, and voila – no...

There's only one country that has ever used nuclear weapons. There's only one country that has used nuclear weapons on civilian population centers. There's only one country that has ever threatened to use nuclear weapons on non-nuclear countries. There's only one country that has over 10,000 nuclear weapons many of which are on hair-trigger alert for enemies real or imagined. There's only one country that has...
