These are some pictures my Father took inside a nuclear power plant while they were changing some fuel rods. *He is an NDT (non-destructive tester). *He tests the turbines for cracks in the fan blades and houseing using various different metheds. *These turbines are HUGE so they need to be kept in top working order per OSHA standards because if one flies apart it will cause some damage. *While he was in one of the power plants he took these pictures of the nuclear reactor and fuel rods. *Keep in mind there are NO LIGHTS down under the water where the reactor is. *All the light in the picture is from the reactor itself and the fuel rods. *For those that do not know water is the best shield for radioactivity so the entire reactor is kept sumberged in so many feet of water at ALL TIMES. *The fuel rods are handled by a robot and also kept underwater at all times. *The rods even go in tunnels under water to the storage facilities for spent fuel rods. *I asked and these pictures are not top sectret and I was given permision to post them. *I think its interesting. *It will give you a new awareness of the power of radiation!
Remeber NO LIGHTS!!
This picture might have lights on the reactor is closed.
