Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift off

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you...

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

(from the immortal David Bowie)

lost in space: missed this. Haven’t found 36...Qa8+. Was too much focused on keeping the Queen on the kingside, closer to the white king.

  lost in space: Here an other Blitz game of mine, played at Silvester. I was White.

1. d4 c5 2. d5 e5 3. e4 d6 4. Nc3 f5 5. f4

Maybe not the best. The simple 5. Bb5+ Bd7 6. exf5 wins a pawn and it is not clear how Black can get it back. I was more interested in opening the position

5... Qh4+ 6. g3 Qd8 7. Nf3 exf4 8. Bxf4 Nf6 9. Bd3 fxe4 10. Nxe4 Nxd5?

Better was 10...Nxe4 11. Qe2 Nd7 12. Qxe4+ and white has a big lead in depepment - but the material is still even.

11. Bb5+ Bd7 12. Bxd7+ Nxd7 13. Qxd5 Ne5 14. Bxe5

Better was 14. 0-0-0 and 14. Qe6+

14...dexe5 15. Qxe5 Qe7 16. Nd6+ Kd8 17. Nf7+Qxf7 18. 0-0-0+

18...Kc8 19. Rhe1 Qxf3
The position was already lost, but now the mate is near.

  lost in space: Tja,

die Tonlage der 3 Berichte (vom gleichen Autor) zusammengefasst: Alles nicht so schlimm, alles unter Kontrolle oder bald unter Kontrolle. Keine signifikante Erhöhung der Radioaktivität, weder im Meer vor Fukushima noch im Pazifik weiter weg vom KKW. An Land auch - außer in einem Bereich direkt am KKW Fukushima.

Das stimmt in etwa mit dem überein, was ich derzeit aus anderen Quelle höre, aber es ist auffällig, dass es auch Bericht gibt von Mutationen bei Fische/Meersäugern weiter weg von Fukushima (Grund dafür: Radioaktivität wird über Meetesstömungen eher in den Pazifik befördert, verbleibt nicht nahe des KKW’s).

Von hier aus kann man es nicht beurteilen was stimmt, wir müssen wohl weiter abwarten.

Ich bin vor allem gespannt, ob es eine Kontamination des Grundwassers geben wird und ob die Rückkehrer in die Gefahrenzone Spätfolgen haben werden oder nicht.

Meiner Meinung taugt die Kernkraft aus mehren Gründe nichts:

1. Wohin mit dem Abfall, der mehrere hunderttausend Jahre sicher gelagert werden muss, bevor zumindest die Hälfte der Radioaktivität abgeklungen ist?

2. Nur alle 100.000 Jahre sollte eine Kernkraftwerk eine GAU erleben laut Expertenberechnung. In meinem Leben gab es 3 dieser GAU’s bei einigen hundert KKW’s weltweit. Das reicht, um sicher zu sein, dass die Zahl der Experten nicht stimmt

3. Die Folgeschäden nach einem GAU sind riesig. Ob tödlich wie in Tschernobyl oder nicht (wie hier behauptet in Fukushima). Warum das riskieren, wenn es weniger gefährliche Alternativen gibt?

I think Black is already better. 11. Bxf6 was not the best, exf6 is theory

13. b3?

Better was 13. a4 or Qe2

Fukushima: Highest level of radicativty measured at Fukushima. Seems it is inside of one of the reactor buildings and caused by molten Uran/Plutonium. So no direct threat for (human) live
