My project of a breeder reactor:
The core is made of a lead box and is divided in 9 squares each squares mesures 30*30mm.
The Breeder reactor will be fuelled by U3O8 in a cube surrounded by aluminium foil, the core was 26 cubes of U3O8 and a cube each was americium and foil to make neutrons.
In the next wekend want go to the uranium mines and retrive a lot of ore, after processes the ore and extract the uranium U3O8 will post some updates to this project
This is my radiantion detectos, the CD V-750 Dosimeter Chargers and the CD V-742 Dosimeter (the yellow pen),the CD V-700 is my most used item is a geiger counter,and the CD V715 it only mesures high level of radiantion.
The overall cost was around 270€ (price+ shipping + customs).
In the nest wekend I will travel to the center of Portugal (my country :D) and explore some Uranium deposites to retrieve some uranium ore for later use it in my prototype of a breeder reactor!
My first post 😀
