Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years, thus once created it remains radioactive for 240,000 years.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Karl Grossman writes 'Last week an airplane using only solar power, Solar Impulse 2, landed in Hawaii after flying across the Pacific. It's to go on flying around the world. Also last week, in an expansion of the use of biofuels for aviation, United Airlines announced the start of flights between Los Angeles and San Francisco of jets using fuel derived from farm waste. United further said it will invest $30 million in one of the major producers of jet bio-fuels, Fulcrum BioEnergy'. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Meanwhile, Grossman tells us, of another scheme, to build NUCLEAR POWERED planes, 'The Boeing scheme would have lasers in an airplane engine bombard deuterium or tritium causing a nuclear explosion with its force providing thrust.'

Removal of resistance: He points out 'Regarding the Boeing scheme, the result of the Uranium-238 being struck by neutrons would be some it being transformed into Plutonium-239, said Morgan. Plutonium has long been described as the most toxic radioactive substance, and Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years, thus once created it remains radioactive for 240,000 years.' Unification: Let's go with solar, eh?
