    Three Mile Island nuclear reactor shuts down unexpectedly.

    Three Mile Island nuclear reactor shuts down unexpectedly - U.S. News

    Three Mile Island nuclear reactor shuts down unexpectedly.

    By NBC News and wire servicees
    A reactor at Three Mile Island, the site of the nations worst nuclear accident, shut down unexpectedly on Thursday afternoon when a coolant pump tripped and steam was released, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission told NBC News.
    The system tripped when "the pump stopped operating and created a power/flow imbalance," said NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan.
    The plant responded as designed and is stable with no impact on public health or safety, added NRC spokeswoman Diane Screnci.
    If any radiation was in the released steam, Screnci said, it would be below detectable levels.


    This interested me because I'm currently working in Harrisburg, and will be tomorrow.

    Nothing happened in the "worst nuclear accident' in the first place. It worked as designed even with stupid operators shuttting off cooling water.
    (water boiled off and reaction was killed, yes the latent heat destroyed reactor core...) Investors lost, public was never in any danger...

    This is just an excuse to remind people of the massive hype of 3MI.

    PS
    I used to believe the accident stories too, then I read al l the details of the "accident" in several books......all over blown BS.

    Of course this recent minor event (and all the other minor events) are used by the news media to remind people of the big event which took place before I was even born. It's how news works.


    I'm just saying I found it interesting because I was in Harrisburg that day. Not that I actually thought anything bad would happen to me because of it.

    It's called Debate Politics, but funny enough, it talks about sports, entertainment and cooking to name a few other things. It even has a place where you can have a beer. So what is your beef again?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Is the THree Mile Island nuclear reactor a Mark I type reactor like the Fukushima reactors that failed and went into full meltdown?

    Yes, and it will fail and go into full meltdown as easily as the Fukushima one did. Y'know, after a huge earthquake and giant tsunami.
