Not enough has been, or ever will be, said of the phenomenon that is Bassett Tongue.
The IAEA says the move suggests the country is widening its arms effort.
It has been amply demonstrated that the use of plutonium as a fuel in nuclear reactors makes no economic sense. It's time to end this costly and pointless industry.
A Republican former secretary of state and a Democratic "Jewish mother" may have just given us the strongest case yet for the nuclear agreement with Iran. The first is a pillar of the "realist" camp in the American national security establishment. The second is a rising star in the Democratic Party from a heavily Jewish district in South Florida.

Plutonium has long been described as the most lethal radioactive substance. And the plutonium isotope used on the Curiosity rover is significantly more radioactive than the type of plutonium used in nuclear weapons or built up as a waste product in nuclear power plants.
An ongoing government analysis of an important nuclear weapons laboratory's ability to withstand earthquakes may be flawed, according to a federal oversight panel.
Now a team of scientists—physicists Frank von Hippel and Richard Garwin along with environmental scientists Rodney Ewing
Fukushima's Nuclear Nightmare Is Far From Over (or the Disturbingly Deadly Act of Placing Profits Before People)
Why does Fukushima still matter? Because no matter what TEPCO or the authorities have claimed, the reactors and the fuel pools are unstable.
HANFORD SITE, Wash. – Seven decades after scientists came here during World War II to create plutonium for the first atomic
