Nuclear Afternoon: True Stories of Atomic Disasters Nuclear Afternoon: True Stories of Atomic Disasters
Nuclear Afternoon is a chilling chronicle of major nuclear incidents around the globe such as Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, spanning more than 60 years. Our atomic history spans more than sixty years and most of it isn't pretty. In March 1958 a US Air Force B-47 accidentally dropped an atomic bomb on the town of Mars Bluff. In South Carolina in January 1978, the Russian spy satellite, Cosmos 954, carrying a nuclear reactor, failed to attain orbit and fell back to Earth. In March 1979, a series of mishaps caused a nuclear reactor on Three Mile Island to overheat. In April 1986, The Russian Chernobyl-4 reactor exploded, releasing radioactive materials throughout the area.
Fourteen incidents, or more appropriately accidents, are recounted in this book. With compelling detail and eyewitness testimony, Burleson illustrates the human drama and the nuclear problem, and he discusses just how much effort it takes to right the world when an accident occurs. Today, with gas prices skyrocketing, nuclear power is being billed as the savior to our energy crisis. In the United States, thirteen new reactors have been proposed and, worldwide, sixty-five new reactors are on order. This book calls our attention to the awe-inspiring power of nuclear energy when something goes wrong and outlines what individuals and nations must do to limit the damage from disasters that surely will occur. These are cautionary tales for us all.
