Oklo Mine at Gabon.
“Thirteen nuclear reactors existed in “prehistoric” periods along the 200-metre mine bed at Oklo –it was discovered in 1972, and they were comparable to the modern nuclear reactor in power and heat combustion. This mine had the capability of enabling self-sustained nuclear chain reactions”. This discovery shocked the entire scientific community back in 1972Ă˘â‚¬Â¦Ă˘â‚¬Â¦.
…Perrin and the other French scientists concluded that the only other uranium samples with similar levels of the isotopes found at Oklo could be found in the used nuclear fuel produced by modern reactors. They found that the percentages of many isotopes at Oklo strongly resembled those in the spent fuel generated by nuclear power plants..
Romans Chapter 1 speaks of the wise men of this world worshipping the created rather than the creator. Science is a big believer in the creative power of Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“natureĂ˘â‚¬Âť which is a creation of God rather than the Creator. So when faced with the desperate need for an explanation for an ancient nuclear power generator, science renewed its faith in created things. ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s difficult to remember this now, but back when the natural explanation was first offered, not everyone was on board.
Previously on this site weĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve looked at an apparently ancient nuclear power plant at Oklo in Gabon, in four articles. These nuclear reactors were estimated to have produced on the order 0f 1,000 megawatts, comparable to a large modern plant.
The radioactive byproducts of the reaction are still conserved in the area around the reactors leading some to call the reactor Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“well designedĂ˘â‚¬Âť. Natural uranium is made up primarily of uranium 238 (99%). In order to make this natural uranium fissionable, the 99% uranium 238 must be converted into uranium 235 (enrichment).
There are a variety of ways to do this, however as pointed out in the New York Times of June 21, 1976, all of them require advanced technology
