April 2006[edit]

Mohamed ElBaradei will be in Iran Wednesday!? -Edbrown05 05:42, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

the thumbnail for this article is ridiculous. Something like just an Atom would be fine, or if you guys want it i'll just get the borderline of Iran with an atom symbol in it. -- 14:24, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

It's just a standard little graphic of the sort that most news agencies use for many stories in a similar theme. I don't know what's so ridiculous about it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 16:32, 12 April 2006‎


Can this information be confirmed: Iran's current enrichment is only to reactor-grade — around 3.5% of the isotope uranium-235. Uranium-235 occurs in less than 1% of all uranium found in nature, but is the only isotope of uranium which is easily fissionable. In order to create a nuclear bomb, a few kilotons of uranium must be enriched to around 90% of uranium-235. Experts have said that if Iran is going to attempt to make enough uranium-235 for a nuclear bomb, they would need to install thousands of centrifuges and run them continuously for many years... I do not recall seeing any of that in the sources...Unless I missed it. Jason Safoutin 16:38, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

  • It might not be in those sources, but it is easily verifiable from our uranium enrichment article at Wikipedia. Unfortunately the mainstream news sources generally do not explain the technical aspects, even the very basic ones which are necessary to make sense of the story. --Fastfission 19:05, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

ISBN magic link[edit]

Template:Rl This page uses an ISBN magic link, a feature which is likely to be replaced sometime soon per the RFC on Mediawiki. In the Sources, please enclose the word ISBN, and the number immediately after it, inside the {{ISBN}} template e.g. {{ISBN|0870621440}}, which should have no outward effect but ensures that the link to Special:BookSources is maintained when the magic link is deprecated.
