Listening to Dr. Kaku speaking to Art Bell on radio (C2C) last week end and tell of the scientists that have been killed while working on atomic bombs and the mistakes/meltdowns that have been kept hushed up made for one of the more interesting late night radio programs in a long time. Art was saying he had not heard of most of the things that have happened to pioneer nuclear scientists and Dr.Kaku said he was able to read the history reports of these cases that have taken the lives of 7 American men and countless Soviet citizens when several atomic reactors had a core meltdown and a atomic waste dump exploded in Russia around 1960. (I wonder if anyone has known of any of the disasters he mentioned?) I remember 3 Mile Island, Chernoble in the USSR and stories of "The Day We Almost Lost Detroit " ( Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant?) I remember stories of some scientists being killed by exposure to big amounts of radiation in Labs but thats about all. Dr.Kaku said a breeder reactor in England caught fire and was burning in the core when water was poured into it in an attempt to put out the fire in 1959? and it exploded and sent a huge cloud of radioactive debris over the English channel. Anyone hear the program or care to add any meltdown info stories to this?
