fricken laser beams
Tim Blair has pointed out a bit of Greenpeace scaremongering concerning the Lucas Heights nuclear facility.
"Greenpeace says a little known company called Silex is using the facility to develop a process to enrich uranium with the aid of lasers."
Ignoring the inherent coolness of Australia using laser beams to enrich uranium, how does one become classified as a "little known" company?
By having a website?
By being listed on the Australian Stock Exchange?
You can read Silex's response to the Greenpeace claims here. I like this one in response to claims that their technology will aid proliferation of nuclear weapons:
"Laser technology is far more difficult and techincally challenging to implement, but if sucessful, offers superior economics.
Proliferators are not interested in economics."
