At 4 a.m. on March 28, 1979, the worst accident in the history of the U.S. nuclear power industry begins when a pressure valve in the Unit-2 reactor at Three Mile Island fails to close. Cooling water, contaminated with radiation, drained from the open valve into adjoining buildings, and the core began to dangerously overheat.
And it just so happens I’m looking at the cooling towers in the horizon as I type this now..
A beautiful sight for some. A constant reminder of danger for others.
Money to be made and energy to be created. Hell or high water, nuclear phantoms lurk.
