    Is this true? 5,000yrs of NUCLEAR battery life...

    " 5,000yrs of battery life: Nuclear waste-formed radioactive diamonds provide long-lasting energy

    Scientists have discovered a way to convert nuclear waste into radioactive black diamond batteries which last more than 5,000 years.
    Researchers at the University of Bristol have found a means of creating a battery capable of generating clean electricity for five millennia, or as long as human civilization has existed.

    Scientists found that by heating graphite blocks – used to house uranium rods in nuclear reactors – much of the radioactive carbon is given off as a gas.

    This can then be gathered and turned into radioactive diamonds using a high-temperature chemical reaction, in which carbon atoms are left on the surface in small, dark-colored diamond crystals.

    Well, give this diamond to your wife and let's see how fast she falls appart. ;)
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    That would be great.

    Interesting that the author place the beginning of human civilisation 5000 years ago, at the time of the Indo-European migrations (during the Yamna period and just at the beginning of the Corded Ware culture).
