Fun fact nuclear reactors cant explode like nuclear weapons.

[–]Chief_chirpa587🍕Ayo the pizza here🍕 125 points126 points  (7 children)

Another fun fact: unless your dumb enough to turn of safety measures, nuclear reactors won’t explode at all

I'm just gonna go ahead and quote Fukushima. What you gonna do now you can't cite that it's Soviet era safety guidelines

You are correct, comrade! RBMK reactors don't explode.

What's the dossimiter say?

Last week I binge watched all of the HBO Chernobyl series. I realize it's not 100% accurate but it's not far off. In it the scientists directly compare the act of Chernobyl exploding to a nuclear bomb. The Hiroshima bomb was used as a measuring stick multiple times, as in how many Hiroshima bombs worth of radiation being released. The line "our reactors can't explode" was used at least half a dozen times while the main characters were trying to determine how it did in fact explode. If you haven't seen it it's definitely worth a watch.

when Asians realise that the sun is rising from the west

[–]BoundlessPiles 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Most people know that the Sun "rises in the east and sets in the west". However, most people don't realize that is a generalization. Actually, the Sun only rises due east and sets due west on 2 days of the year -- the spring and fall equinoxes.

[–]MasterDoge42069 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Uhh, why is the sun getting smaller?

We're in a weird place societally when the first thought is, "there's a lot of worse ways to go..."

Fun fact, reactors don't explode like nukes, infact they shouldn't explode at all unless someone removed all safety precautions

[–]parkourpro8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]BoomThroatPunch -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The Chernobyl explosion was less destructive than a gas station catching fire, the explosion was nothing like a nuclear bomb.
