Fusion poisons; why fission has none
>Well, Gregory, we can debate to the rest of our lives as to what a
Well if you are going to write the word "poison" when you reallly mean
something else, like "chocolate cake" or something, what you write may be
technically true for you but meaningless to everyone else. You write "there
is no fission poison" meaning "there is no fission chocolate cake" which may
(sort of) true, but meaningless to anyone who reads your writings.
Wrong, there is a very specific meaning of "posion" in nuclear fission
It is a substance that kills the nuclear fission reaction. Read any good
on nuclear reactors. This usage is equivalent to the common use of the word
'poison', a substance that kills one who ingests it.
It is. Boron-10 has an enormous appetite for neutrons, and its presence in
nuclear reaction will kill the reaction, dead.
There you go off with some nonsense meaning of 'poison'. You may as well
substitute 'chocolate cake' for 'poison', it will be just as meaningful.
