While the Germans were trying to make a nuclear missile during the war, they never even really cracked nuclear technology in the way that America and Russia did. However a lot of the Russian nuclear technology came from the German scientists at the end of the war.
Your earlier posts seem to give the impression that you thought that Nazi's had a lot of nukes and that the USA just got all of their technology from them. They didn't, so think about how you have worded your posts before complaining about someone when you yourself have got it wrong.
You also seem to be saying that because he wants to try heavy water, he must be from the middle east and therefore IS most definitely a terrorist who wants to nuke us... well... im not even going to explain why you were wrong here.
You seemed to be the one who was trolling, then you actually decide to reply in a slightly intellectual manner... but you don't have much to stand on due to your earlier childish and ignorant posts.
Now, lets get back on topic instead of having some stupid argument over who invented nuclear technology.
You dont need to be the most sensitive person in the world to understand I was messing about. ChielScape seemed awfully serious. Itellectual debates on the world wars are continual pissing up the wall contests.
I was kinda curious myself now about what the difference between heavy water and "normal" light water.
Freezing point (Â°C) 3.82(H) 0.0(L)
Boiling point (Â°C) 101.4(H) - 100.0(L)
Density (at 20Â°C, g/mL) 1.1056(H) - 0.9982(L)
Temp. of maximum density (Â°C) 11.6(H) - 4.0(L)
Viscosity (at 20Â°C, mPaÂ·s) 1.25(H) - 1.005(L)
Surface tension (at 25Â°C, μJ) 7.193(H) - 7.197(L)
Heat of fusion (cal/mol) 1,515(H) - 1,436(L)
Heat of vaporisation (cal/mol) 10,864(H) - 10,515(L)
pH (at 25Â°C) 7.41(H) (sometimes "pD") 7.00(L)
Heavy water benefits seem to have been merely to stabilize neutron degradation and ineraction, nothing to do with its cooling capacity. From what Ive read, maybe I misinterpreted it.
