How to quell a dangerous nuclear reactor :-Note; radio-active cesium and strontium elements are alkali molecules and can be significantly moderated with bi-carbonated soda, Note when spread over a dangerous critical nuclear reactor it will change to hot water steam molecues and hot CO 2 which will quell the hydrogen released! and smother the oxygen present! THUS REDUCE EXPLOSIONS; graphite in the absence of oxygen is excellent for smothering uranium fires because it transfers heat away and expands considerabley; this blocks radio-active discharge from fissures ballooning in reactor skin! powdered 'red lead' can be mixed with sand Fuses when at 3,000 degrees and is used to finally smother the reactor, and solidify which then blocks all radiation completely! take's many tonnes to achieve this!

note; red lead acts as a flux with hot uranium at temperatires approx 3,000 degrees C and forms Tri'uranium octoxide (U3O8, the most stable uranium oxide, nickname' yellowcake typically contains 70 to 90 percent triuranium octoxide
