Hey tina sun is not a nuclear reaction. You demonstrate how you know no science so readily.
Yes, to a university web page on the sun and how it is a nuclear reaction. Corrnel University and I seem to be on one side and on the other is Space Blues and ??? Looks like you lost again,

Show us where it says "sun is a nuclear reaction?"

Sure, lets start with the title. Which is, "How do we know that nuclear fusion is still going on in the Sun?". How about telling us how long light from the center of the sun takes to reach earth according to Dave Rothstein, Researcher for Cornell University. He did mention it in the article.

Funny, but have you ever considered that above that same town, there is a huge nuclear reaction called the sun. In fact you tend to receive more radation flying than standing next to a nuclear reactor.
Also, I have yet to find a example of a nuclear reactor now operating inside the limits of a town or city.

LOL.

So it's ok for nuclear reactors to release radiation because the sun is a giant nuclear reactor?

Brian's post was dumb; yours is super mega dumb.

The comment about a nuclear reactor in the middle of a town was the dumb comment. The idea of building one in the middle of a town was suppose to be a strawman argument. Which in this case fell flat.

brain's logic says radiation is not a threat because we can't see it.

tina's logic says radiation is not a threat because the sun is a nuclear reactor.

We can take out the word "logic" here and replace it with "stupidity".

Dumb and dumber, a pair of idiot trolls.

And you think you have something to say on the science of global warming.

No, your ignorance is not as good as other people's knowledge.

Feck off.

Our University of Washington in Seattle had a small teaching nuclear plant on the campus. One of the students let me see the pool of blue Cherenkov radiation, one of the loveliest images I ever remember. It looked similar to pools of jade green glacial water or lakes that have suspended finely ground rock.

The Seattle reactor isn't there any longer, but operating reactors are at Madison, Wisconsin, & one in Texas. Must be others.......

Well "pinheadlitesout" that would explain why you really really don't know. Hay looks like your buddy spacedoutblue got another spanking from tina.

Do you get spankings in the porn movies that you are a gofer for. Or does your 'feces face' even put off the porn queen from touching you.

Ah, Fair Game had it right.....'phud feces face' is in fantasyland.

The sun operates on the basis of nuclear fusion. This is not the same type of nuclear reaction as what happens in current nuclear power reactors, which is fission.
Fusion is a matter of combining two atoms to produce a single atom containing nearly all the mass of the original atoms. For example 2H (deuterium, or hydrogen-2) combines with 3H (tritium, or hydrogen-3) to produce 4He (helium-4) plus a single free neutron. In the process some of the mass of smaller nuclear particles is converted into heat. The reaction is sustained because there is a lot of deuterium and tritium in the sun, and because there is sufficient heat to combine them.
So you really really don't know.

NO.

Where you copied from asked the question, "How is a sun a nuclear reactor?" You did not even notice the different word "reactor," not reaction.[Because to an ignorant like you and tina, it makes no difference.][WRONG]

Then you copied 2H, 3H, and 4He: WRONG. The evidence is inside the parantheses.[WRONG]

Then you copied the thing about some of the smaller particles converting to heat. Gee what could they be?[WRONG]

SO you really really really don't know even to copy paste. LOL.

Sure do I copied and pasted the info you only know. Now again put on your big boy pants and show all your onw work. You find it fashionable to defend your answers with the cut and paste method but discount others. See you really really don't know.

I never claimed 'radiation is not a threat'; those are Fair Game's words, not mine. I replied to F.G.'s claim CO2 is filthy and wrote nothing about radiation.

Fair Game's logic is questionable; Carbon Dioxide is necessarily for life.

What are you saying? You are ph'd.

What you don't understand is that science relies on previous science results. I have not invented our understanding of nuclear reactions. The credit goes to a lot of men and women on this planet.

Start reading about nuclear history.

Neither is radiation, so by that logic*, you wouldn't mind if the reactor in your town started leaking it.
