the weather forecast for tomorrow is looking good! we are going to do the [last snowshoe tour of the season tomorrow!][gg] quite excited by it!
in case you are interested in joining: [contact fredi kälin of blue-dimension until 21:00 tonight!][fredi]
our good friend and sometimes mountain guide [fredi kälin] had [advertized a snowshoe tour to the gloggeentürmli][fredi-gg] in the [gotthard pass area] — the precondition being that the pass itself got opened again and, of course, that we’ll have appropriate weather.

well, the gotthard pass [was opened thursday a week ago][nzz-gotthard], now let’s see whether the weather plays along…
just stumbled across [an article on spiegel online about a new hypothesis that at the earth’s core is a giant nuclear reactor](http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/natur/0,1518,553785,00.html) — the article mentions that there are _known_ natural nuclear reactors in [gabun](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gabun). googling for “natural nuclear reactors” returns [a page by the curtin university of technology](http://www.oklo.curtin.edu.au/). fascinating reading.
of course the hypothesis mentioned in the _spiegel online_ article is so far just a hypothesis, but it would be a bit ironic if the “green” geothermal water heating technology turned out to be down to nuclear energy in the first place 😉
