I just didn't know about it. Notably absent in the history I studied in school, this accident near Idaho Falls in was perhaps the world's first death by nuclear accident. The world's first meltdowns occurred at the NRTS/5(57).

The SL-1, or Stationary Low-Power Reactor Number One, was a United States Army experimental nuclear power reactor in the United States that underwent a steam explosion and meltdown on January 3,killing its three operators. The direct cause was the improper withdrawal of the central control rod, responsible for absorbing neutrons in the reactor on: National Reactor Testing Station.

severe transient testing and finally tested to total destruction. The final test resulted in an intense explosion with reactor parts and scraps of uranium fuel scattered around on a few acres of the surrounding desert.

Plans were made to build Borax III even before the final tests of Borax II were completed. Borax III was originally built without. Plants–Classification Recommended Citation Atwood, N.

It was located at the Idaho National Laboratory, then called the National Reactor Testing Station. As quoted by Arlington National Cemetary Records: "3 January A reactor explosion (attributed by a Nuclear Regulatory Commission source to sabotage) at the National Reactor Testing Station in Idaho Falls, Idaho, killed one navy technician and two army technicians, and released radioactivity "largely confined" (words of John A.

McCone, Director of the Atomic. On January 3,nuclear reactor SL-1 exploded in rural Idaho, spreading radioactive contamination over thousands of acres and killing three men: John Byrnes, Richard McKinley, and Richard Legg. The Army blamed "human error" and a sordid love triangle. Though it has been overshadowed by the accident at Three Mile Island, SL-1 is the only fatal nuclear reactor 3/5(1).

The reactor that Byrnes, McKinley, and Legg worked on was unglamorous and unloved even inside the fences of the National Reactor Testing Station in Idaho.
