  • January is National Radon Action Month

    For two weeks straight, Stanley Watras set off the radiation alarms as he entered his workplace at the Limerick Nuclear Power Plant in Pennsylvania. Authorities at the plant were stunned to learn that the source of the radiation was astoundingly high levels of radon gas in the basement of the Watras family home and not from the nuclear plant itself. That was in 1984.

  • Signing of Historic LOI for Mining Expedition to the Moon

    LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 16, 2021 / US Nuclear Corp (OTCQB: UCLE) and Solar System Resources Corporation in Poland signed a historic transatlantic agreement for the supply of the desperately rare helium-3 isotope from deposits located on the moon.

    Helium-3 is humanity's hope for cheap, ecological fusion energy without the production of radioactive wastes. It is estimated that 200 tons of helium-3 would be enough to meet the global annual energy needs of all mankind without producing greenhouse gases or pollution and without burdensome social austerities and sacrifices - unlimited, cheap, clean, green energy.

  • NASA and US Space Force Are Considering Fusion Energy to Power Our Moon and Mars

    LOS ANGELES, CA, June 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE ‒ US Nuclear Corp. (OTC: UCLE) announces that NASA has just released “Artemis Accords - Guidelines For Humans to Abide by in Space” which also covers protection of the astronaut’s basic infrastructure, including their major assets: spaceships and the Moon and Mars base power plants. Ideally, these will all be fusion-powered.

    NASA and the new US Space Force need a clean, high-powered, compact, and safe energy source for spacecraft propulsion and to establish operations on the Moon and colonizing Mars. Since there is little spare oxygen on space ships, the Moon, and Mars, most conventional energy sources (such as fossil fuels) will not burn and are not useful. Nuclear fission is not safe, and solar cells do not generate adequate power.

    Visualizing the world’s water security threat

    Benjamin Hennig explains two cartograms that demonstrate the global water security threat

    Global croplands play a central role in feeding the world’s population. As the population keeps growing (though with declining growth rates that suggest an end of growth towards the end of the century), the importance of croplands for water and food security has become a central focus of research.

    The US Geological Survey estimates that there are 1.87 billion hectares of global croplands, which means that on average one hectare sustains food production for about four people in the world. The three most populous countries, China, India, and the USA, also have the highest net cropland area (albeit the largest country by population, China, only comes third in terms of cropland area). However, the overall distribution is much more uneven and less related to where most people live on the planet.

    Fusion the energy of choice for NASA space travel plans.

    By MARK R. MADLER Staff Reporter

    Radiation detection manufacturer US Nuclear Corp. is getting behind the U.S. space program.

    The Canoga Park company, through its partners Magneto Inertial Fusion Technologies Inc. and MIFTEC Laboratories Inc., is promoting the use of a new type of fusion energy that can be used to power spacecraft to Mars and for colonies on that planet as well as the moon.

  • Radiation Plus Brain Sensors?

    TECHNOLOGY: US Nuclear’s unusual strategic investment. via San Fernando Valley Business Journal. usnuclearcorp.com

    By MARK R. MADLER Staff Reporter

    On the surface, the investment by US Nuclear Corp. in a San Diego company that makes components used in machine-brain interface devices might seem an unusual strategic decision.

    After all, the Canoga Park company’s main business is manufacturing radiation detectors for use at nuclear power plants.

    But Chief Executive Robert Goldstein doesn’t see it that way.
    “We consider ourselves in the sensor business and electrodes that go in the brain are sensors,” Goldstein said.

    US Nuclear Corp signs letter of intent to manufacture MIFTEC medical isotope generators

    by John Fischer , Staff Reporter

    The radiation detection holding company signed a letter of intent last week with MIFTEC, whose parent company is Magneto-Inertial Fusion Technologies Inc. (MIFTI) Nuclear Fusion, for the sole manufacturing rights of its generators. These utilize its Staged Z-Pinch fusion technique to produce a high number of neutrons, which can then be used to create medical isotopes. “One of the reasons that we’re so excited to be constructing this agreement is that MIFTI and MIFTEC have developed a procedure for producing a large flux of neutrons from a very small footprint,” Robert I. Goldstein, president, CEO, and chairman of US Nuclear Corp, told HCB News. “The plan is to build these radioisotope generators and sell them for maybe $6-$10 million each. If you want to put up a nuclear reactor, you’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars to make the initial investment.”
