Lets All Panic About Nuclear Reactors!

Little Boy

The local TV news KOB would like everyone to know that UNM’s Nuclear Engineering Lab has a 1966 built nuclear reactor. Now panic.

It is a lesser known fact that UNM has a nuclear reactor on campus. Students use it for training. But in light of the threat of nuclear meltdown in Japan, some are wondering if it is even a good idea to have it.

It’s not a lesser know fact anymore since KOB is questioning if UNM should have one. Meanwhile New Mexico has a large number of military labs (maybe the most of any state) where nuclear bombs have been made for years (and who knows what other kinds of experimental weapons). New Mexico is the home of the Manhattan Project after all.

Meanwhile while everyone is panicking, they are buying out the local stock of potassium iodide.
