Experts in Iran's Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) managed to build and test a first-ever nuclear rod in the country, IRIB news reported.
The rod contains natural uranium and has been delivered to Tehran research reactor after a successful test.
The fuel rod has already been exposed to 1500 MWH of radiation and has been successful in neutron tests concerning radioactive levels or leakage. The rod is currently under exposure to more radiation to test its endurance qualities.
IRI experts have already supplied the country with its needed radio isotopes immorally sanctioned by the West. The medicinal breakthrough was vital for many patients in need of such drugs.
