nuclear "blast"



VanKathy felt that a nuclear event (explosion) was unlikely in a natural
environment.  Well actually that has occured in at least one event a very
long time ago (few billion) due to the fact that nuclear progenitors were
much more prevalent in those times.  Uranium 235 is not longer found
naturally but at one time it was.  There was na artical in Scientific
American a long time ago (1970's?) that described just such an event. The
resultant hyper critical event lasted several thousands of years.  It was
started by some tectonic event that got two masses close together, masses of
the size of a few hundred acres. I had hot heard of the Sahara event. but it
would not be unlikely if it occured billions of years ago.  In more recent
times it is much more unlikely.
