Nuclear Power Plant - EBR-1 - Arco, Idaho
Advertisement
This is the first Nuclear Power Plant in the world and it powered the city of Arco, Idaho
This plant was flawed because they had no idea what they were doing...

There is a picture of a man throwing the switch.
The man looks like Harry Truman.
Question was this the president throwing the switch?
Answer No it is the Mayor of Arco, Idaho.

The museum is full of scientific equipment from the 1940's that looks brand new.
Why does it look brand new?
Answer well you know we only used to for 6 months until we realized it was flawed and built another.

There are 52 power plants at this site...
they build a plant, test it, find the flaws, and build a less flawed plant.

Touring a Nuclear Power Plant - EBR-1 - Arco, Idaho




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv-Cv6lpx3Q

The Experimental Breeder Reactor 1 is a decommissioned research reactor and a National Historic Landmark located in the desert about 18 miles southeast of Arco, Idaho. It was one of the world's first electricity-generating nuclear power plants. It was also the world's first breeder reactor and the first to produce electricity using plutonium fuel. The museum has an impressive collection of original artifacts and a large area to explore. Josiah and Peter were able to follow a tour guide around the plant. Eleanor and I enjoyed the kids area and built straw rockets and paper airplanes and then explored some of the hands-on exhibits. Admission was FREE and it was a great educational pit stop for our family!

Atomic City, Idaho is the purposely built city of the future.
It is a huge failure.

Atomic City, Idaho Drive Thru - First Fatal Explosion Affected Atomic City Dramaticly!




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OFTqj9Oiv4

Atomic City, Idaho: Sitting forlorn at the edge of the sprawling 890-square mile Idaho National Laboratory complex, this modern-day ghost town has a shocking nuclear history that drove residents away in the ’50s and continues to keep visitors at a distance. Here, in 1961, the country’s first fatal nuclear explosion took place – not even a decade after a dangerous reactor meltdown left the town paralyzed with fear. Today, while not fully abandoned, Atomic City stands desolate and scarred by the radioactive fatalities of the past with only a handful of residents remaining as a living legacy of the tragic events. Atomic city Idaho nuclear program. The population was 29 at the 2010 census.

Here before they landed on the moon the LM was flown here and landed here.

It is not a good place to camp... too hot...
The nearby mountains are cooler..

Craters of the Moon: Things to see at this National Monument & Refuge

Craters of the Moon: What to see at this National Monument & Refuge
In May, we took a little road trip down to Craters of the Moon National Monument and Refuge near Arco, Idaho. This is one of the coolest and surprising places in our region. The landscape is lunar and other worldly. So much so that NASA does special training there. Much of the monument is roadless but in the north, the visitor center offers some science and context for the region and you can get your free permit to explore the lava tubes! You can camp a the campground right next to the VC if you are looking for where to stay. You can also drive the scenic loop road and hike up a few extinct plugs and cinder cones. The lava tubes are probably the most fantastic part to visit though. They are so huge, we found it hard to fathom the scale.

The weather at Craters can be extreme so plan ahead. When were there in May, it was windy and very sunny but it can get VERY hot in summer and VERY cold in winter. Also, take water.

If you get a chance to visit Craters of the Moon in Idaho, let us know what you think. Also, leave us a comment below, even if it's just to say hello.

SL 1 Nuclear Reactor Accident 1961 Idaho Falls




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lVAqEypenA

The following information courtesy Wikipedia:
The SL-1, or Stationary Low-Power Reactor Number One, was a United States Army experimental nuclear power reactor which underwent a steam explosion and meltdown on January 3, 1961, killing its three operators. The direct cause was the improper withdrawal of the central control rod, responsible for absorbing neutrons in the reactor core. The event is the only known fatal reactor accident in the United States. The accident released about 80 curies (3.0 TBq) of Iodine-131, which was not considered significant due to its location in a remote desert of Idaho. About 1,100 curies (41 TBq) of fission products were released into the atmosphere.

The facility, located at the National Reactor Testing Station approximately 40 miles (64 km) west of Idaho Falls, Idaho, was part of the Army Nuclear Power Program and was known as the Argonne Low Power Reactor (ALPR) during its design and build phase. It was intended to provide electrical power and heat for small, remote military facilities, such as radar sites near the Arctic Circle, and those in the DEW Line. The design power was 3 MW (thermal). Operating power was 200 kW electrical and 400 kW thermal for space heating.

In the accident, the core power level reached nearly 20 GW in just four milliseconds, precipitating the reactor accident and steam explosion.

A Brief History of: The SL-1 Reactor Accident




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYle_eI5j78

The SL-1 was an experimental nuclear reactor, and stood for Stationary low power reactor no. one. The idea for the reactor was part of a series of experimental nuclear power plants for use in remote radar outposts in the arctic, where the only power source had been from diesel generators.

I had a dream about a nuclear test city the other week.

Nuclear Pioneers EBR I




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4WVFWCdHic

A trip to the Experimental Breeder Reactor I (EBR-I). In 1951, the first electricity from nuclear power was generated at EBR-I—using a reactor that actually bred more fuel than it consumed, using an all-plutonium core.

Experimental Breeder Reactor I (EBR-I) is a decommissioned research reactor and U.S. National Historic Landmark located in the desert about 18 miles (29 km) southeast of Arco, Idaho. At 1:50 pm on December 20, 1951 it became the world's first electricity-generating nuclear power plant when it produced sufficient electricity to illuminate four 200-watt light bulbs.[3][4] It subsequently generated sufficient electricity to power its building, and continued to be used for experimental purposes until it was decommissioned in 1964.

I didn't see the pic of Truman throwing the switch, was hoping to see that in the vid
Good that they made it into a tourist attraction
