    Radiation in Water – A Real Risk

    The question when introducing US Nuclear Corp’s real-time continuous water monitors to municipal water utilities is, ‘why do we need an instrument like this?  We don’t have radiation in our drinking water or wastewater.’

    Our question is ‘how do you know if you don’t monitor the water’. Typical monitoring is 4 times a year per EPA’s Clean Water Act. A water sample is pulled and sent to a lab for testing. Not a very timely or cost-effective method.

  • Hydrofracking and Water:

    Hydrofracking and Water:

    HYDROFRACKING & WATER:

    What is the cost in contaminating our water?

    By Penelope Randall, Environmental Specialist, US Nuclear Corp

    Hydrofracking demands for water use is up 770 percent since 2011 according to a 2018 peer reviewed study out of Duke University. The use of millions of gallons of water and sand infused with up to 1,000 different toxic chemicals is used to fracture shale rock and release the trapped gas or oil.

    The wastewater, brine, and sludge are then returned to the surface and in need of disposal. Unfortunately, there is not yet a clear and safe method of disposal or storage. In many places this wastewater is reinjected into deep underground wastewater wells. There is mounting evidence that this method of disposal may be responsible for earthquakes and pollution of groundwater in some locations. The exponential growth of the hydrofracking industry and its practices constitutes a growing problem.

    US Space Force and NASA Looking to Privatize Nuclear Spacecraft Production

    LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 7, 2020, / US Nuclear (OTCQB: UCLE) is the prime contractor to build MIFTI’s fusion generators, which could be used in the relatively near future to power the propulsion systems for space travel and provide plentiful, low-cost, clean energy for the earth and other planetary bases once our astronauts get to their destination, be it the moon, Mars, Saturn or beyond. Chemical-powered rockets opened the door to space travel, but are still far too slow and heavy even to travel to distant planets within our solar system, let alone travel to other stars. Accordingly, NASA is now looking for nuclear-powered rockets that can propel a space vessel at speeds close to the speed of light and thermonuclear power plants on the moon and Mars, as these are the next steps towards space exploration and colonization.

    US Nuclear and Grapheton Brain Implants to Help Immobilized Patients

    Los Angeles, CA.  November 2, 2020 – US Nuclear (OTC: UCLE) and Grapheton’s implantable bioelectronic sensors can be used to help treat millions of people worldwide suffering from mobility problems.  Neuroscientists stress there is a large unmet demand to develop implantable sensors and the artificial intelligence required to translate the brain signals into specific commands or actions. As many as 500,000 people worldwide suffer spinal cord injuries every year and approximately 1.7% of the U.S. population or 5.4 million people suffer from some form of paralysis. Furthermore, COVID-19 has caused an increase in the number of strokes, especially among younger individuals.

    US Nuclear Secures Its Position at Bioelectronics Startup Grapheton

    Los Angeles, CA.  October 19, 2020 – In addition to US Nuclear’s (OTC: UCLE) 40% stake in Grapheton, CEO Robert Goldstein has recently taken a seat on Grapheton’s board of directors and will now serve as Chief Strategy Officer. As Chief Strategy Officer for Grapheton, Robert Goldstein will help the business become a leader in the new field of bioelectronics and will cement the partnership between US Nuclear and Grapheton.

    Grapheton’s unique, patented bioelectronic implants lead the world in bio-compatibility and longevity. Bioelectronics is becoming popular among researchers and doctors, and the bioelectronics market is likely to experience tremendous growth in the near future. In recent years, there have been numerous breakthroughs using bioelectronics technology. A notable example, bioelectronic devices have been researched and used in clinical trials to treat rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease by electrically stimulating the vagus nerve to control inflammation and the immune response.

    Bioelectronics has the potential to become a vital branch of medical treatment. Medical care, in general, has made many advances in recent years, but there are a great many diseases, conditions, injuries, and remaining unmet patient needs that still need to be urgently addressed.

  • Tritium Monitor Market Soars Due to Construction of $20+ Billion ITER Fusion Energy Project

    Tritium Monitor Market Soars Due to Construction of $20+ Billion ITER Fusion Energy Project

    Los Angeles, CA.  October 6, 2020 – As the construction of the huge ITER tokamak grows towards completion, the tritium monitoring market is soaring. As the world leader in quality tritium monitoring instrumentation, US Nuclear’s (OTC: UCLE) Overhoff division is poised to capture a large portion of this business.

    The ITER fusion project seeks to develop a major new source of electric power to help supply the world’s fast-growing appetite for dependable, 24/7 electric power. Fusion is fueled by tritium and deuterium, which are both isotopes of hydrogen.  Tritium is in short supply and ITER will fully deplete the global inventory. ITER is a $20+ billion international scientific and engineering project jointly funded by the European UnionChinaIndiaJapanRussiaSouth Korea, and the United States.

  • Making Our COVID Survivors Whole Again By Solving Yet Another Desperate Shortage

    Making Our COVID Survivors Whole Again By Solving Yet Another Desperate Shortage

    Los Angeles, CA.  August 3, 2020 – US Nuclear Corp. (OTC: UCLE) aims to combat COVID-19 and help patients and survivors of the virus by working together with MIFTEC to produce an unlimited supply of domestic, low-cost medical isotopes.

    The IAEA is supporting more than 121 countries with RT-PCR equipment, which is used to rapidly detect COVID-19 in real-time by a nuclear-derived technique and is one of the most widely used and accurate lab methods. The isotope Co-60 is also being used to sterilize medical equipment, devices, and supplies for COVID-19 professionals to ensure they are safe for use.  Co-60 irradiation is one of the quickest and effective methods for sterilizing large volumes of this equipment.

    Medical isotopes and nuclear medicine are proving to be effective in sterilizing, detecting, and fighting COVID-19 and guiding successful treatment. In addition to damaging the patient’s lungs, this virus also attacks the heart, blood vessels, liver, intestines, brain, and nervous system. It causes blood clots and sometimes strokes or seizures. Unfortunately, as a result, many of our COVID-19 survivors will need serious medical help for months or years to come.

    Medical isotopes are being used for lung diagnostics, determining the extent of the patient’s disease, and mapping the COVID-19 proteins, while others are being researched as a possible treatment for combating severe COVID-19 cases. Medical isotopes are necessary for nuclear medicine diagnostic scans to guide the physician in treating our brave survivors.
