If it's even possible, I think it would be awesome to have an image of this. -Craig Pemberton 03:57, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
I think the author of the article has the roles of U-235 and U-238 reversed: it is U-235 that undergoes natural spontaneous fission, and U-238 will when induced by thermal neutron bombardment. It is a common misconception that U-238, being "heavier" is somehow less stable and more prone to spontaeous fission.
