WikiLeaks Releases Cache of 400,000 Iraq War Documents

Yehooti Just us, or ... (676 comments)

I'm curious why we've not seen any releases of Russian actions in Chechnya, by these folks.

NASA's Plutonium Supply Dwindling; ESA To Help

Yehooti Re:Recycle Nukes? (173 comments)

Pu-238 is the isotope used for RTGs. 239 is the isotope used for weapons. Different type, so that wouldn't work, as much as it would be neat if it would.

Before the Big Bang: A Twin Universe?

Yehooti Re:Fallacy of the Big Bang Theory (212 comments)

OK, I'm not a cosmologist. The Big Bang is a theory so could certainly be wrong, so I'm posing a question here as well as posing a 'what if?'. We're looking for the God Particle (Higgs boson), which attaches itself to all matter except photons. Well, I think they attach to photons in some way too. Where I'm going is to a steady state universe where the most distant light has been affected by Higgs' particles. That light has lost energy getting here though not velocity. We see it as a red shift. Further along back in that direction, the photons have been affected enough to no longer be light but background RF radiation. Is it possible that we are truly in an infinite universe and that the most distant sources of photons that we can discern are now in the RF range? Not because of a receding outer limit but because their extreme distance has drained their energy?

At the time, I looked into it as an alternative but found the distance to travel to the nearest center providing it, plus the cost, balancing the scale towards conventual therapy. What MIT suggests here http://www.physorg.com/news75993652.html looks mighty promising and if such a center were close would have tipped my scale towards the protrons. Limiting collateral damage is always a good thing."
