You should find it if you haven't already, it's bloody impressive.
It is a great watch.

Have you watched Guy Martins documentary on the power plant?

After my Navy Education, I moved to the Northeast to a career in commercial Nuclear Power. I started as a Radiation Protection Technican, moved in to Operations as an equipment operator, got my license as a Control Room Operator and then moved up to Senior Reactor Operator where I was in charge of a crew responsible for the daily and emergency operation of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station.

Are you Homer Simpson?

Silent one,

Thanks for sharing your background. Nuclear field has always interested me. My hometown of Durango, CO hosted the Vanadium Corp. of America-- they did the initial yellow cake refining, and shipping to Los Alamos for the two A-bombs. Also, my very best friend built nuclear triggers at Rocky Flats for about twenty years, between Golden and Boulder, CO, and he also did remedial soil contamination clean up there. Last... son of another good friend is a nuclear engineer in Bremerton, WA "turning over" nuclear Navy power plants. Fascinating stuff..oh and I forgot, my grandfather was a professor of physics at University of Arizona-Mesa, and was involved to some degree in the Los Alamos project: he would never discuss.

I likely have radiological markers in my bones...downwind of the Nevada tests... physics rocks.
