In 1979, TMI Did Not Mean Too Much Information

Thirty-five years ago today, there was a malfunction in the brand new number 2 reactor at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Middleton, Pennsylvania. For several days afterwards, the world held its breath as it waited to see if the hydrogen gas within the reactor would explode and rain radioactive material on the eastern coast of America.

The official report by the Nuclear Regulatory Committee (NRC) eventually blamed the situation on operator error. However, eyewitness reports credited the quick actions of a mysterious, gold-clad hero with beating back the real cause of the meltdown: a radiation-absorbing creature from another dimension.

In the aftermath of the meltdown, the NRC made sweeping changes to prevent a recurrence of the problem. They appear to have worked. In the thirty-five years since, not once has a giant radiation-absorbing creature attacked an American nuclear power station. We'll keep our fingers crossed, just to be safe.
