Iranian nuclear scientist was expert on triggering nuclear warheads

Shavua tov, a good week to everyone.

This post is being written on Friday afternoon. Posting will be a bit sporadic on Saturday night, I have work to do and I will be spending the night sleeping in an isolation room with a friend's son who is undergoing a bone marrow transplant. Please pray for Moshe Aharon ben Leah Tzipora.

Remember the Iranian scientist who was shot on Sunday? He was described as a physicist, but I wrote immediately that he was a nuclear scientist. Well, it turns out that he was much more than that. He was an expert at developing triggering devices for nuclear warheads.
It seems that this scientist was an expert on triggers...
An official, from a member nation of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, verified that the victim was named Rezaeinejad, but said he participated in developing high-voltage switches, a key component in setting off the explosions needed to trigger a nuclear warhead. An abstract seen by the AP and co-authored by Rezaeinejad appears to back that claim.

What this shows is the Iranian effort continues... no big surprise. More important, somebody knows where all the bodies are buried inside Iran. Interesting indeed. If I were a young Iranian nuclear scientist, I might get a good life insurance policy, but the premiums might be high indeed. Bravo to whomever "pulled the trigger" as it were.
