Geeze do some research. Your numbers are way way off. Talk about incompetence.
people are way too scared of nuclear they have no clue the reality of it, safe as heck
This article is so BS. You gotta love the internet. Sorry a man died.
generate 10K Mw of nuclear power, nor provide power for 2.8M residents. Duh!!!
get your facts straight. Plant can't employ 15k workers, nor generate 30k Mw electricity or---
The plant was shutdown when the turbine stator fell. There is no nuclear material in this building.
I've seen photos. To answer someone's question, the rigging contractor was Bigge.
Ok, so the fact that it happened on Sunday morning is not "fishy"... it was during an outage.
This was an industrial accident, not a nuclear accident.
This appears to have been written by a sixth grader. Check your facts before you publish.
OK top of reactor off. Leaks from primary to secondary. Steam contents unmeasured. All's safe.?
Typical: "No nuclear material was released." Tell Washington State, Arkansas, Nebraska etc.

Visit Church next to a nuke plant. Read the petition request book. See how many COUPLES have cancer.
