It is great to see some commentary on the individuals who are making such a sacrifice. We should all have a greater awareness of what they are doing for their nation and the world.



I hope that I would have the courage to do my job if it meant knowingly exposing myself to radiation. This reminds me of the submariners on the K-19 who walked into a highly reactive compartment to jury rig a cooling system.

It would be interesting to know more technical details of the Drywell Torus reactor. I have searched online but can't find much. A lot depends on how much abuse it can take. For starters, what kind of steel did they use that can possibly withstand the temperatures of a meltdown?
