Criticality accidents report Since 1945 there have been 60 criticality accidents world-wide with varying levels of severity, from the most recent, a September 1999 accident in Japan that resulted in the deaths of two workers, to the very first fatal accident during the WWII Manhattan Project. All of these criticality accidents are now chronicled in a new report from the Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, made public today. The report, a joint effort of the United States and the Russian Federation, is the latest revision of a report first published in 1967 titled “A Review of Criticality Accidents”.


It includes significant new information about accidents that occurred in the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Argentina and Japan. The report begins by separating accidents into two distinct categories: process accidents and research reactor accidents. Separating the two categories is important because of distinct differences between the two. In process accidents, administrative or physical controls are generally in place to prevent any sort of criticality, meaning that when criticality occurs it is wholly unwanted and unexpected.

In research reactor accidents, some measure of criticality is purposely achieved, usually during experimentation, and ends up getting out of control somehow. One of the report’s principal authors, Thomas McLaughlin, of the Laboratory’s Nuclear Criticality Safety group, says the report serves not only to reconstruct criticality accidents but to also offer information central to the prevention of accidents and the most effective response should an accident occur.

“The most important sections of the report deal with observations and lessons learned from process criticality accidents,” said McLaughlin. “All criticality accidents are dominated by design, managerial and operational failure, it’s important that these issues be the focus for accident prevention.” A criticality accident occurs when the minimum amount of fissile material required to sustain a chain reaction is accidentally brought together.

For example, when the nucleus of Uranium-235 disintegrates, two or three neutrons are released, and each is capable of causing another nucleus to disintegrate. However, if the total mass of the U-235 is insufficient to sustain a chain reaction, the neutrons simply escape. In most criticality accidents this chain reaction is very short lived, causing a neutron population spike and resultant radiation, heat and, in many cases, an ethereal “blue flash,” a phenomenon of the air surrounding a neutron burst becoming ionized and giving off a flash of blue light.

The first-ever criticality accident resulting in a fatality occurred at Los Alamos’ Omega Site on Aug. 21, 1945, and involved a 6.2-kilogram nickel-plated plutonium sphere and neutron-reflecting tungsten-carbide blocks. A critical assembly was created accidentally while the reflecting-blocks were stacked around the Pu sphere. The lone experimenter, Harry Daghlian, while moving a block in order to take a measurement had the block slip and drop onto the center of the assembly, causing a “superprompt” criticality event. Daghlian removed the dropped block by hand to stop the chain reaction and in doing so received a radiation dose estimated at 510 rem.

He died 28 days later. The vast majority of accidents do not result in death, but there have been 21 fatalities from criticality accidents since 1945. Nine of these fatalities were due to process accidents, and 12 resulted from research reactor accidents, according to the report. Of the 21 deaths, seven occurred in the United States, 10 in the Soviet Union, two in Japan, and one each in Yugoslavia and Argentina.

There have been no accidents involving the transportation or storage of fissile materials. Only one accident, at the JCO Fuel Fabrication Plant in Tokimura, Japan, resulted in measurable exposures to members of the public, and these were well below allowable annual exposures to workers. The report, originally scheduled for publication near the end of 1999, was held until now in order to add information from the process accident in Japan. “We felt it was very important to wait until we had the facts from this latest event so they could be added to this new revision,” said McLaughlin. “The entire team working on this report wanted to make sure that it was a comprehensive as possible and contained the most up-to-date information.” In addition to McLaughlin, the report’s authors are Shean Monahan of LANL, Norman Pruvost of Galaxy Computer Services, Inc., and Vladimir V. Frolov, Boris G. Ryazanov and Victor I. Sviridov all of the Institute of Physics and Power Engineering in Obninsk, Russia.

Prophecies and Visions for the USA

Different Prophets had Visions and made Predictions for the USA.

Take a look at all the names of the USA-Prophets.


Nostradamus predicts us economy will colapse, no more money to pay troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hopi Indians

The USA will be Destroyed ! The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee. Bomb shelters are a fallacy. “It is only materialistic people who seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil. Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers.

Hopi prophecy states that World War III will be started by the people who first received the Light: China, Russia, Palestine, India and Africa. When the war comes, the United States will be destroyed by “gourds of ashes” which will fall to the ground, boiling the rivers and burning the earth, where no grass will grow for many years, and causing a disease that no medicine can cure. This can only mean nuclear or atomic bombs; no other weapon causes such effects.

Bomb shelters will be useless, for “Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the Great Shelter of Life. There is no shelter for evil. When the Saquahuh (blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask, the time of the great trial will be here.” The Hopi believe that only they will be saved.

Henry Gruver

USA Invasion Prophecy – On December 14, 1986 Henry Gruver had a Vision : I Saw Submarines Attack America! – I was in Wales in 1986, i went up on top of the Eagle Tower in the Caernarvon Castle. All of a sudden I was up above the earth looking down upon the earth like a globe. As I looked down on the earth, I saw massive amount of all kinds of ships and airplanes. They were coming from up above Norway,out of this inlet. They headed down between the United States and Europe.

They covered the Atlantic between the U.S. and Europe. Then I wanted to see what was happening to the United States. I looked over on the globe at the United States. I saw coming out of the United States these radio communication towers. I saw the jagged lines like they draw to show that communications are coming out. They were in our territorial waters! Then I saw missiles come out of them! They hit eastern and western costal cities of the United States.

SS18 Satan Missles June 18, 1991 Art Cormier’s revelation of America was going to be destroyed by a Russian attack of SS18 nuclear missiles. Russia has named these missiles “SS18 Satan”

Gail Smith

Earthquakes and USA Invasion – Shortly after the second earthquake the United States will be attacked by invading forces. Russia will invade the East coast and China the West coast. The invasion will include missile attacks. She was shown that the invasion would occur when people were eating and drinking which Gail believes to be Thanksgiving, but possibly Christmas. There will be nuclear attacks on both coasts, Las Vegas, and perhaps in Utah.

Note: The Predicted Wall Street Crash Prophecy is Already fulfilled a long-lasting quake and a major quake will break many dams. She saw the invasion taking place near or shortly after the second quake. 3 1/2 years after the first two quakes, two more mega-quakes will hit that will shake the entire planet and will kill millions and literally cause whole mountain ranges to rise and fall.
