Elephants have miles of unbroken
savanna to roam inside Uganda’s
Queen Elizabeth Park, where their
numbers total 2,500, a dramatic rise
after heavy poaching in the 1980s.
Outside the preserve villagers kill
elephants that trample and eat crops,
though attacks have diminished with
the digging of trenches to protect
fields from wild trespassers.

Stephen Wilkes
The liveliest show in
town, Times Square
buzzes with reborn
energy. A 30-year
redevelopment project
turned a seedy stretch
of Broadway into today’s
neon-lit shopping and
entertainment walkway.
Some dislike the themepark commercialism
of the redo, but almost
all applaud that the
streets are alive with
a city’s most valued
resource—people.
For his “Day Into Night”
image, Wilkes shot for ten
hours from a single point
and digitally blended the
stills to make a time-lapse
scene within one frame.

The Story of Our World
National Geographic’s editors, journalists, and
photographers are the world’s best storytellers­.
Through their award-winning images and reporting,
and a comprehensive, unbiased presentation of
complex issues, National Geographic is able to
establish a dialogue with readers that makes them
think about their role in the world. That power
to strike a chord makes National Geographic an
essential vehicle that enables advertisers to reach a
receptive audience that will embrace and act
on their message.
Pre-Editorial Well
Each month the following vibrant departments appear
in the front of the magazine and provide multiple entry
points for advertisers:

editorial relevancy and readers’ personalities

the month’s programming of interest on the National
Geographic Channel and the Nat Geo Wild Channel

happening now around the world, and is complemented
by stunning photography, maps, and charts

Map Supplements
A long-standing tradition in National Geographic magazine, and
one of readers’ favorites, large-format, freestanding, blow-in map
supplements complement related articles with stunning graphics
and illustrations, making these collectibles readers not only save,
but often display.

Shuttles’
Last Trip
After roughly 30 years of
service, the remaining space
shuttles are headed for the
final frontier: retirement.
Museums around the country
have been clamoring for a
chance to take one home.
When the Apollo program
ended, the Smithsonian had
right of first refusal for surplus
NASA artifacts, from astronaut
diapers to lunar landers. But for
the shuttles, NASA issued a
special proposal. Museums that
wanted an orbiter could apply
for one, but they had to say how
the ship would be displayed,
how their exhibit would “inspire
the American public,” and—most
important—how they would raise
the $28.8 million needed for
cleaning and transport.
As a result, the California
Science Center will soon be one
of only four museums to house
a space shuttle (map below):
Endeavour is due to land in Los
Angeles in 2012. “We have the
honor of being stewards of
something that we all hold as
part of our national heritage,”
says the museum’s aerospace
science curator, Kenneth E.
Phillips. “It’s an overwhelming
feeling.” —Victoria Jaggard

CAN WE FLY?
At the center of each poppy seedsize fuel particle is a uranium kernel.
Layers of carbon and silicon carbide
contain the radioactive material.
MELTDOWN-PROOF NUKES
The next generation of nuclear
plants may be cooled by gas—
helium gas. Such reactors
SEPTEMBER 2011
Pyrolytic carbon

Uranium
Porous carbon
were proposed in the 1960s
but rarely pursued; only a few
have ever been built. But that
1
could change. Though issues
such as fuel storage are a
potential concern, gas reactors—which can’t melt down—may
be a way forward in the wake of Japan’s nuclear disaster.
Using helium as a coolant has at least a couple of
advantages. For one thing, it’s inert, so it can’t become
radioactive like the water in water-cooled plants. For
Reactor
core
another, gas reactors are more efficient at generating
electricity than water-cooled ones, because they run much
hotter. That heat, produced carbon free, has gotten the
attention of chemical, fertilizer, and oil companies. Though
it’s still in the developmental stage, “this technology could
be a real game changer,” says Fred Moore of Dow Chemical.
2
At the core of the reactor’s safety is a clever fuel design.
Instead of the uranium fuel rods used in water reactors,
gas-reactor fuel takes the form of uranium bits scattered
among graphite “pebbles.” Graphite is a great moderator,
slowing down the neutrons and keeping their reaction
in the proper temperature range.
Andrew Kadak of MIT, who visited a small prototype
pebble-bed reactor in China four years ago, watched engineers turn off the cooling system. “It naturally shut down,”
he says. “It was incredible. Especially in light of Fukushima,
this is a reactor that doesn’t melt down.” —Juli Berwald

What’s Inside
a Pebble?
Each “pebble” in a pebblebed gas reactor is a graphite fuel sphere the size of
a tennis ball. Nine grams
of uranium are dispersed
among some 15,000
tiny particles within the
graphite. During a recent
three-year test at Idaho
National Lab, 300,000 fuel
particles were heated to
2300°F and bombarded
with neutrons. Not a single
particle leaked radioactive
material—strong evidence
of the fuel’s safety.
3
1

3
How It Works
A pebble-bed reactor is made up
of about 400,000 pebbles. Heat
from the fuel spheres is picked up
by helium and can then be used
to generate electricity—or to drive
industrial processes such as oil
refining and desalination.
Blowers move helium
gas through the reactor
and over the pebbles,
where nuclear fission
releases large amounts
of energy, heating
up the helium.
About 5,000 spheres
move through the reactor each day, like gum
balls through a vending
machine. The constant
circulation means no
refueling interruptions.
If a pebble taken
from the bottom can
produce more power,
it goes back in the top.
If it’s spent, it’s stored
as waste, and a new
pebble is added.
