Nuclear Energy, Neutron Beams, & Experiments Gone Wrong

This summarizes two important and interesting facts about the Fukushima Daiichi plant accident and nuclear energy experiments.

1. The Fukushima event may have produced a neutron beam. These are signs that the damaged nuclear fuel rods may have cong supercritical and released radiation.

2. The history of a handful of really interesting events in the early days of the application and demonstration of nuclear, during which researchers accidentally exposed themselves to lethal doses of radiation.

Now, I still think energy efficiency is a better alternative to nuclear energy.
