Quotes

"I'm always amazed to see how a pinhead-sized sample from dirt can be ionized and accelerated through the maze of beamlines in CAMS and then go exactly where it needs to go in order to allow us to count its individual atoms. The CAMS allows us to count these very rare beryllium-10 atoms, which is analogous to finding the one grain of sand that is different than the rest on a beach."
...One of America’s leading experts on Iran’s nuclear program, Greg Thielman of the Arms Control Association,  explained  in 2012: "By the time Iran acquires approximately 225 kilograms of uranium gas … enriched to this level, it would be within one month of being able to further enrich to the 90 percent required for producing the metallic core of a nuclear warhead—assuming it takes 25 kilograms of material for one bomb."
"The issue is virtually resolved," said Iran's chief negotiator, Ali Akbar Salehi, last week. The agreed-upon proposal is "to redesign the Arak reactor and to reduce its plutonium production to one-fifth."
...According to Garzione, "In geologic terms, rapid means rising one kilometer or more over several millions of years, which is very impressive." Researchers have known that as the Nazca oceanic plate slid under the South AmericanAmerican continental plate, the Andes mountain range has risen...
