Why Do This
- The Internet potentially
offers fantastic opportunities for learning. When I originally setup this
website, there was little available on nuclear power. Also it is obvious that only very few people will
ever have the opportunity to visit a nuclear power plant,
training center, or simulator. In my travels, I have been fortunate to be able
to take pictures at many of the nuclear plants that I have visited or worked
- Nuclear power plants have
operated safely throughout the world for over 50 years, including some individual plants
that have operated for over 35 years. Undoubtedly, missteps have
occurred, e.g Windscale, Three Mile Island, and Chernobyl. On the
other hand, there are thousands of people throughout the world
who are selflessly dedicated to ensuring that the recurrence of such
events is extremely low.
- I believe the time has come
for individuals to step forward and fill the gap in the education
and training materials available on the Internet.
