Danish telco TDC has agreed to sell its Norwegian business to Sweden’s Telia for NOK21 billion (€2.2 billion).TDC is selling cable operator Get and telecom subsidiary TDC Norway to Telia, leaving the Danish company to focus on its domestic operation.Telia said that the agreement would position it as a strong challenger in mobile, TV and broadband in the Norwegian market, where it will compete head to head with Nordic rival Telenor.“It is with great excitement and commitment that we announce the agreement to acquire Get and TDC Norway. It will create a leading convergent operator for both consumers and enterprises in Norway, which can compete in the market with a lot of attractive and new products and services,” said Johan Dennelind, president and CEO of Telia.“This transaction is beneficial for the Norwegian customers and society. We are building a great company with passionate employees where we have invested heavily in our mobile network, which now covers 98% of the country. As part of Telia Company, Get will continue to invest in the rollout of broadband and fibre.”In May Telia confirmed reports that it was in talks to buy Bonnier’s broadcasting business, comprising Swedish broadcaster TV4 Group, pay TV outfit C More and Finland’s MTV. The company said at the time that “content is an important part of the company’s future strategy and we continuously investigate possibilities in this and other areas”.The agreement with TDC will see Telia take responsibility for 900 employees and a business with over one million customer relationships.The sale, which will see Telia take control of the two Norwegian businesses at an EBITDA multiple of 12.1, is expected to close in the second half of this year, pending approval by the Norwegian competition regulator.Get has 428,000 TV customers and 372,000 broadband customers and is the second biggest provider of TV and broadband services in the country. Get and TDC Norway together generated a turnover of DKK2.56 billion (€343 million) and DKK0.65 billion respectively last year, representing about 15% of TDC’s overall group revenue. The two companies’ operating profit was DKK1.39 billion last year.TDC, which acquired Get for NOK 13.8 billion in 2014, said that its vision was now to provide high-speed and high-quality connection to Danish homes through fibre and mobile networks, and to develop innovative digital solutions for its domestic market. The company will generate a profit after tax of approximately DKK5 billion on the transaction.Outgoing TDC Group CEO Pernille Erenbjerg said that following the company’s review of its strategy, it was “clear that we do not need to own these business units to succeed in what is actually a Danish-focused ambition”.TDC’s withdrawal from Norway follows the acquisition of the company by infrastructure investment group Macquarie earlier this year. The company announced a new organizational structure at the end of last month. Macquarie’s acquisition of the company had an immediate impact on the company’s forward strategy, with the abandonment of a deal to acquire Swedish free and pay TV outfit Modern Times Group’s broadcasting and streaming arm.

What’s That? Your Physics Questions Answered Iran claims it has enriched uranium to 4.5%, breaking the limit of 3.67% set during the 2015 nuclear deal. The move was a response to the U.S. violating the terms of the deal under President Donald Trump’s administration. But what does the enrichment news mean? To a certain extent, this is a question with a simple, chemical answer. As the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission explains on its website, uranium comes in a few different forms (or “isotopes”). All of them have the same number of protons (92) but a different number of neutrons. By far, the most common such isotope in nature is uranium-238, which has 146 neutrons. On Earth, this isotope makes up 99.3% of any sample of naturally occurring uranium. But for nuclear reactors (or bombs), that flavor isn’t very useful. Dense clusters of uranium-238 don’t tend to start nuclear chain reactions. The second most common isotope, however, uranium-235 (making up just about 0.7% of any sample of natural uranium and containing 143 neutrons), does tend to start nuclear chain reactions. In these reactions, the nuclei of the uranium atoms split into smaller nuclei and release neutrons. Those neutrons then cause other nuclei to split, releasing more neutrons for a self-sustaining “chain” reaction that emits enormous amounts of energy.

Uranium enriched to 3.67% is 3.67% uranium-235. Uranium enriched to 4.5% is 4.5% uranium-235. And so on. So does Iran’s breaking of its enrichment threshold mean that the country is now significantly closer to having a bomb? Not really. As the Associated Press reported, 4.5% is enriched enough for Iran to power its peaceful, already-active Bushehr nuclear reactor. But that level falls far short of the standard 90% threshold for “weapons-grade” uranium. And enriching uranium to 90% is an enormous technical challenge. It requires building and operating very advanced centrifuges. If you’ve followed news of international attempts to sabotage the Iranian nuclear effort, you know that the most successful effort — a computer virus called Stuxnet — attacked Iranian centrifuges. Centrifuges are common enough pieces of laboratory equipment. They spin samples of material around so as to generate centrifugal force. Under that intense force, heavier and lighter materials tend to separate. However, a common laboratory centrifuge is nowhere near powerful enough to separate uranium-235 from uranium-238. The two isotopes are nearly, but not quite, identical in mass. And a sample of uranium contains very little uranium-235. As Live Science previously reported, a country seeking to enrich uranium must first transform a uranium sample into a gas. Then, that gas must be whipped up to intense speeds in powerful industrial centrifuges to cause the two isotopes to separate, before the uranium atoms get extracted from the gas once again. To extract the 137 lbs. (62 kilograms) of uranium-235 necessary to build the bomb dubbed “Little Boy” that was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, the United States in 1945 expended a full 10% of its national energy supply, according to “The Making of the Atomic Bomb” (Simon & Schuster, 1995). The original uranium sample weighed 4 tons (3,600 kilograms). And 20,000 people helped build the refining facility that made the bomb, a facility that required 12,000 people to operate. It’s not infeasible that Iran could enrich a significant stockpile of weapons-grade uranium. But the 4.5% mark doesn’t represent a significant step in that direction, except in symbolic terms. Iran has also threatened to enrich uranium to 20%, which is closer but still not weapons grade. The question now is whether the breakdown of the nuclear deal, precipitated by the U.S., continues to escalate tensions.
