If we are going to rely on the ANS (a trade association) as an authority: isn't it curious that they are implicitly endorsing the fact that nuclear weapons do explode, owing to their very special materials and very particular configurations?Nuclear Society of America (via Emma) said:Truth: It is impossible for a reactor to explode like a nuclear weapon; these weapons contain very special materials in very particular configurations, neither of which are present in a nuclear reactor.
Thanks for the skepticism! Although Masonic Hall of St. Helens states that Einstein was a Freemason, they don't present any evidence. With a quick Google search, the closest thing I could find to a source for this rumor is here:while I'd like to believe his Masonic connection, I also have to remain cautious
In January 1933, Albert Einstein and his wife Eloise travelled through the Panama Canal and made a secret stop in Puerto Armuelles. There is speculation that Einstein was setting up an "underground railway" for Jews escaping the coming horror in Europe.... Hank Blair, was reportedly a mason and speculation abounds that he was working with Einstein to help refugees escape the coming holocaust in Europe, using the Great White Fleet of banana boats owned by the United Fruit Company. Despite the belief held by many, Einstein, it appears was NOT a freemason. However, he may have had contacts in the craft that enabled him to help Jewish musicians and intellectuals to escape to America.
