About this event

Nuclear Power is inherently safe until the unimaginable happens. At Fukushima this was an earthquake and tidal wave that combined to destroy the ‘failsafe’ systems and local infrastructure. This talk will describe how the events unfolded, and how despite three reactors exploding and ‘melting down’ a disaster of unprecedented scale was very narrowly avoided.
