Visualizing Doses of Nuclear Radiation and their Impact on Humans
In today’s world, we cannot avoid reading about millisievert numbers and alternative denominations of “dose equivalent radiation” in the news, together with comparative statements as “7.5 million times the legal limit"  (Does it matter? What about 8.5 million? 7.5 trillion anyone?) and  other relatively complex comparisons and limits that combine  exposures by hours, with those of days or years equivalent.

Nuclear reactors of the world: vintage wall charts

Now seems like a good week to revisit this set of 105 reactor wall  charts, uploaded by the University of New Mexico. The dates next to each  chart relate to the issue of Nuclear Engineering International magazine  in which they first appeared. Ronald Knief, a nuclear engineer from  Sandia National Laboratories, assembled the image collection.
More about the images, and links to the complete set, here at Bibliodyssey.

Nuclear power plants live along fault lines

As recent events have shown in Japan, nuclear power plants are just as  vulnerable to natural disasters as anything else. So here at Sunlight we  were curious about the locations of domestic nuclear reactors. Using  data from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Geological  Survey, we generated the following map, which shows the location of the  aforementioned reactors (there are 104 of them) vis-a-vis geological  fault lines. We also included locations of significant historical  earthquakes. Take a look and see if we might be vulnerable to a nuclear  disaster if/when “the big one” hits, and click on the red dots to learn  more about each nuclear power plant.

Well, this is horrifying. Too bad this isn’t old enough to be included in I Love Old Magazines.
