MIT提出新式漂浮核

麻省理工学院(MIT)的核科学与工程系的Jacopo Buorngiorno 博士和其它人员正在努力研究一新式漂浮核电站理念,将具有更为安全,更易选址,和集中施工的特点。


2011年,当强烈的地震和随之而来的凶猛的海啸摧毁了日本福岛第一核电站时,既不是地震也不是泛滥的洪水导致核泄漏和污染。然而,这是地震导致的后遗症-具体来说,由于核电站所有电源被切断,从而反应堆未能及时冷却下

多人在坦桑尼亚渡轮倾覆事故中丧生

来源: 2018-09-22 16:46:14 责任编辑:国际海员服务中心网 人气:

 9月20日下午,坦桑尼亚维多利亚湖上的“MV Nyerere”渡轮人满为患,造成至少136人丧生。据路透社报道,该渡轮在距离维多利亚湖最大岛屿上Ukerewe码头仅数米处倾覆。与此同时,据说约有100人获救,约30人受重伤。

然而,由于检票员也在事故中丧生,因而无法估计船上确切人数以及死亡、失踪和幸存的确切人数。相关设备也不知所踪。一位官员告诉路透社,溺亡人数可能会超过200人。

据英国广播公司报道,船舶停靠码头人们聚集在甲板一侧时,超载船舶发生了倾覆。
 
当天下午,当地人与救援队一起展开救援工作。
海上事故是坦桑尼亚过往历史的一个重要特征,而过度拥挤往往是一个重要因素。2012年,一艘渡轮在前往印度洋桑给巴尔岛时沉没,造成超过145人死亡。2011年,桑给巴尔附近海域发生的另一起重大事故中有近200人丧生。
1996年,“MV Bukoba”号在维多利亚湖倾覆,造成超过800人死亡;这是近期最严重的渡轮事故之一。

Dozens dead from ferry capsizing in Tanzania
 
At least 136 people were killed after the ferry 'MV Nyerere', estimated to be significantly overcrowded, capsized on Lake Victoria, Tanzania, on Thursday afternoon.
The ferry capsized just a few meters from the dock on Ukerewe, the lake’s biggest island, Reuters reported. Meanwhile, about 100 people were said to be rescued from the water, while about 30 are significantly injured.
 
However, the exact number of the people onboard, the deceased, the missing and the survivors cannot be estimated because the ticketing officer was among those who perished in the disaster. Relevant equipment was also lost. One official told Reuters that the number of the drowned could surpass 200.
 
It is thought the overloaded vessel toppled over when crowds onboard moved to one side as it docked, according to BBC.
Locals joined with emergency teams in rescue efforts on Thursday afternoon.
 
Maritime disasters are a key characteristic of Tanzania's history with overcrowding often being a significant factor. In 2012, over 145 people died when a ferry sank while transporting people to the island of Zanzibar in the Indian Ocean. In 2011, almost 200 people lost their lives in another major incident off Zanzibar.
 
In 1996, more than 800 people died when the MV Bukoba capsized on Lake Victoria, claiming one of the worst ferry disasters in recent history.
