    Q: "What race does Paploo belong to, who portrayed the character, and what other character did this actor/actress play?"

    A: Paploo is an Ewok.
    The role of Paploo the Ewok was played by Kenny Baker.
    Kenny Baker also played the part of R2-D2.

    If you're a true Warsie, then you know that I'm right.

    Period.

    Lucidus,you old devil you,trying to fool these poor people.

    Paploo was that Kowakian monkey-lizard that Jabba kept as a pet,The actor that played him(or rather,operated him) was Tim Rose,who also played Admiral Ackbar.

    I don't know for sure, but I doubt Jabba would name his pet Paploo. Besides, this is a SW forum and everyone seems to be quite confident on their answers. :D

    Lucidus is the One, but not the One as Neo or Rossello (who from now on I shall call Neossello :p) Note: I don't necessarily believe he is the "One" at all, but due to him being the Messiah and everything, oh well, nevermind.

    I do not recall the name of the Jabba?s pet, but I doubt is Paploo. So Lucidus the truth tells.

    What are blue giants, how big are they, and what is their average life expectancy? Give an example:

    Blue giants are massive stars, 25 to 50 times as big as our Sun, and their average life expectancy is around a few million years. Rigel, in the constellation of Orion is a fine example of a blue giant.

    Facilito para todos ustedes.

    "When and by whom was the world's first nuclear power plant built, and where was it constructed? When was the plant shut down?"

    The world's first nuclear power plant was built on June 27th 1954 by the Soviet government in Obninsk, a small town 60 miles south of Moscow.
    It was shut down on April 29th 2002.

    I was amazed with the answer to this question. I tought these plants were built much before, due to the influence of nuclear power during WW2. Well, I was wrong.

    The firt nuclear power plant was the infamous Chernobyl power plant. Built on June, 1951 the plant was terribly outdated in April 1986.

    In April 1986, Chernobyl' (Chornobyl' in Ukrainian) was an obscure city on the Pripiat' River in north-central Ukraine. Almost incidentally, its name was attached to the V.I. Lenin Nuclear Power Plant located about twenty-five kilometers upstream.

    It was during a test at 1:21 A.M., the No. 4 reactor exploded and released thirty to forty times the radioactivity of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The world first learned of history's worst nuclear accident from Sweden, where abnormal radiation levels were registered at one of its nuclear facilities.

    Ranking as one of the greatest industrial accidents of all time, the Chernobyl' disaster and its impact on the course of Soviet events can scarcely be exaggerated. No one can predict what will finally be the exact number of human victims. Thirty- one lives were lost immediately. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians, Russians, and Belorussians had to abandon entire cities and settlements within the thirty-kilometer zone of extreme contamination. Estimates vary, but it is likely that some 3 million people, more than 2 million in Belarus' alone, are still living in contaminated areas. The city of Chernobyl' is still inhabited by almost 10,000 people. Billions of rubles have been spent, and billions more will be needed to relocate communities and decontaminate the rich farmland.

    Chernobyl' has become a metaphor not only for the horror of uncontrolled nuclear power but alsofor the collapsing Soviet system and its reflexive secrecy and deception, disregard for the safety and welfare of workers and their families, and inability to deliver basic services such as health care and transportation, especially in crisis situations. The Chernobyl' catastrophe derailed what had been an ambitious nuclear power program and formed a fledgling environmental movement into a potent political force in Russia as well as a rallying point for achieving Ukrainian and Belorussian independence in 1991. The plant ceased operations in 2000. The power station was replaced by a thermal energy complex.
