Watts Bar

I went to Watts Bar a week or so ago. We got to tour Unit 2 and basically check out everything. I climbed this 4 story ladder inside the pressure vessel, which was quite fun, but also exhausting. If there ever is a problem, and it over heats, they actually use thousands of pounds of ice to cool it to reduce the reaction rate to something manageable. (thats IF there is an accident... which isn't that likely). More stories for those interested, I can send you an email summary of what we saw.

btw, many blog posts coming out covering the recent trips and the likes, so I'll try and space them out.
