Windscale

October 17, 2007

Mix yourself a barium milkshake to mark the 50th anniversary of England’s worst nuclear disaster. The Brits wanted their own H-bomb. They nearly got their own Chernobyl instead. They averted disaster through an astonishingly risky maneuver, but the radioactive cloud that spread across England and Europe was fun in its own right.

I never knew about this one. Thanks, Ron.
