Last week’s question                                                                        
How many people were killed in the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster in 1979?
 
a.      0
b.      1
c.       8
d.      23
 
The correct answer is A. No one was killed when the core in Unit 2 of the Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station near Harrisburg, PA, partially melted down. The accident began at 4 a.m. March 28, 1979, with failures in the non-nuclear secondary system, followed by a stuck-open pilot-operated relief valve in the primary system, which allowed large amounts of reactor coolant to escape. The mechanical failures were compounded by the initial failure of plant operators to recognize the situation as a loss of coolant accident, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s report.
