Disturbed, folks. Yesterday, we read an article in the Times about the ongoing nuclear disaster in Japan. In what we assume was an effort to provide greater clarity on the situation, the article featured a diagram of the reactor. It. . .It was, um. . . well, that is. . . .Uh, well. here
You see it, too, right? Of course, this does give us a somewhat clearer idea of what goes on during a meltdown. The reactor gets hotter. . . and hotter. . .and hotter. . . until it just EXPLODES and spews things willy-nilly all over the place.
Who knew nuclear physics could be so. . . steamy?
