Three Mile Island Nuclear Meltdown at 42: Never Forget! – NH #509

Three Mile Island Nuclear Meltdown: Never Forget! March 28, 1979 in Middletown, Pennsylvania Nuclear Hotseat producer/Host Libbe HaLevy was one mile from the nuclear accident when it happened.  In this picture, taken 10 days after the accident began, she attempts to inject some humor into a decidedly unfunny situation.  That scream looks like a joke, but it wasn't.

Plutonium + Nazis + Crashes = US Nukes in Space Dangers: Karl Grossman

Plutonium + Nazis + Crashes = US Nukes in Space Dangers - When the Antares rocket crashed in 2014 (above), nothing was said about the possibility of plutonium on board, but research reveals that the power source for this style of rocket was listed as a 4 kg. fuel capsule in the shape of a long rod which contained plutonium-238 - with a half-life of 89.6 years.  Not reported at the time, and confirmation not yet achieved... but what if it did have plutonium on board?     Listen Here: ...

Libbe HaLevy’s nuclear memoir:

CLOSE ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS

…AND DO NOT GO OUTSIDE UNLESS YOU ABS0LUTELY HAVE TO.

The police loudspeaker warned that what was not supposed to happen had happened: a malfunctioning nuclear reactor just down the road.

That’s where author, Libbe HaLevy, found herself in 1979, when she visited a friend in a small, quiet Pennsylvania town and ended up one mile away from the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor during its radiation-spewing meltdown. YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK! tells the story of not only that meltdown, but its impact on a life beyond the mere physical damage caused by radiation exposure.

Fierce, uncompromising, yet surprisingly funny, HaLevy has written a book that Australian physician, author, and anti-nuclear advocate Dr. Helen Caldicott calls, “Absolutely fascinating. This book must be read by all people who care about the future of the planet and their children.”
