I got a nice extremely anonymous email last night, it deleted itself a few seconds later, so I have nothing to go on, but in large letters the mail stated that I was fill of shit, that my solutions never work and that Russia would win. Oh? Well I do like a challenge at times, so lets set this idea of mine in simple English, so that more and more could have a go at those 38 nuclear reactors in Russia, and if a valid Nuclear physicist (I am NOT one) state that it would never work, then I get to go ‘Oops!’ We all have flaws and mine is not IT, but it is nuclear physics, as I never studied it (just plain physics and engineering). So the idea started somewhere before June 2021 (on the 4th I made mention of it). In this situation I had three elements. I initially decided on Beryllium, Plutonium and a third one, Laurentium, or any element with a decently short radio active timeline. In the speculative amounts of 100 gr., 400 gr. and 900 gr.. They would be dipped in a solution of aloe vera and a lot of graphite. The materials would be suspended in their own control rod. The elements were all set to fine flakes, like snowflakes. It was after all a snow globe that gave me the idea.
I created a delivery system (at https://lawlordtobe.com/2021/12/14/keeping-my-promise-part-1/), I even created a camouflage solution a few days after that (at https://lawlordtobe.com/2021/12/16/after-a-fact-to-begin-a-fact/). I reckoned that an injector in the same colour as the pipes would be more easily overlooked, as such I created a solution which could also refresh the paint spray industry.
The device, which I baptised the hornet valve is a recoil countdown driven solution, so no EMP would work and once activated there was no stopping it. When the counter hits zero the hornet sting would penetrate any pipe that gets the solution into the reactor.
Thats where my devious mind had a nice giggle. You see the water would separate the aloe vera mix with graphite and the three elements and they would be in the nuclear bath. When these flakes touch a rod, they would melt to the surface and the reaction would start, the three and the nuclear rod would have a little party and the security would shut down the reactor, which means retracting the rods into a very tight fitting sleeve and here the security system finishes my work for me. You see the elements are now melted to the surface of the rod and even as not every rod will act in this way, some will have the four elements in a sleeve and the reaction goes on and the security system added one element that should never have been allowed into this. It adds pressure and now the linear stage becomes close to exponential and that reactor has a problem.
Here we now have two problems (or better I do).
The first problem are the elements. I chose three elements on logic, but it is my logic and not that of a nuclear physicist. That person might have selected other elements, perhaps one or two might be enough. The second part is how much of an elements is required. It is not merely one rod, but how many rods need to be ‘infected’ with the added material to guarantee meltdown, without getting a boom reaction. I am not a monster, I want the reactors out of commission, not have millions of Russians glow in the dark (it does make for an easy turkey shoot, but it is a bit extreme).
Those two parts need to be filled in by an actual nuclear physicist, I never was one. So in all this I created a solution that might be good enough for a movie, or to make a lot of Russians really afraid. Well, it was initially meant for Iran because no one was doing anything about them and I was feeling deceptively evil (too many Grinch movies). The nice part is that none of the solutions I was able to find on the internet was able to deal with my form of attack, when it is in the cooling water the rest goes automatic, so whomever does it needs to realise their trip is one way. I know too little on the timeline they have at that moment and the injector can be set to some timeline, but will it be enough?
So here is the solution in plain English (for the emailing Neanderthal) and if you cannot work it out from there, it is on you, and if my solution is completely wrong (which requires a nuclear physicist to conform) I will happily go ‘Oops!’ And transfer this idea to some new film script. We all like to reuse the same idea on multiple levels.
So have a nice day and try not to glow in the dark.
