ABSTRACT
The article reports on the recent chain reaction of events in earthquake- and tsunami-stricken Japan that has made the world debating on the idea of nuclear safety. The author discusses the engineering processes of the Fukushima Daiichi reactors (FDR), reporting that newer reactor models do not have the FDR weaknesses. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has pledged to review its policies, but it has also vouched for the safety of America's nuclear reactors. Germany has shut down seven of its oldest reactors while studying what to do with the rest.
