When it melts down instead of trying to contain the radiation, why not nuke the reactor and allow the radiation to spread over a large area, thus diluting it to safer levels over time? I have no idea how this stuff works, so sorry about the dumb question.

When you spill milk on the floor do you pour the rest of the gallon on top of it to spread out the damage?

In this case the solution to pollution is NOT dilution.

There is a basic principal that for many of the isotopes present in reactors there is no "safe" level. Every level presents a risk of damage to health. The question is if that risk is measurable and visible in the short term.

Did all the open air testing of nukes in the 50's and 60's negatively impact the health of people in this country or the world? Chernobyl? Fukishima? It's difficult to measure in the short term but the presumption is that yes it had impacts. So "diluting" radiation into the world atmosphere may not cause any less damage despite its lower concentration and it may make it worse.

Spilled milk yields zero damage- except to acidic materials (which would not be in/on your floor anyway).

Let that spilled milk start settling into nooks and crannies and then post how your kitchen smells in a couple days.

Just like a chemical spill you can clean up a nuclear meltdown by dumping kitty litter on it. So you see, a nuke would be silly when cleanup is so simple.

...so anyway, spilled milk != reactor meltdown. I guess I just needed to repeat it a little more clearly for some people.

If someone's going to go to the trouble to create an analogy, put some actual thought into it.

GD is assholes. Anytime someone asks an innocent question hoping for knowledge they are called retarded. It happened to me asking a question regarding underwater cables. I don't know a damn thing about the subject so I asked. OP, and myself, are not nuclear physicists, unlike the rest of GD. So he asked a question. Better to ask instead of spouting off incorrect info.

Pour milk on it?

That was my plan. I thought spilled milk and nuclear reactor meltdowns were, in essence, the same thing. But GD has shown me the errors of my ways. Now I'm adrift on seas of uncertainty.

Spilled milk has more in common with a nuclear meltdown than it has differences.

You boil the 1911 and bag the milk.

Everyone knows that only bagged milk can be used on a nuclear meltdown.

I'm not going to beat this guy over the head. You guys are far better at internet humiliation. I'd rather educate the OP.

Check out a Discovery Channel documentary called "The Battle of Chernobyl"
I'm not able to find a free copy. It's worth buying if you really want to know what happens before, during and after a nuclear plant meltdown.

no, but it's probably the simplest part of the whole thing.
Toxicity, radiation levels, isotopes that like to hang out in tissue and organs, (still ignoring the idea of nuking it - why not use conventional explosives? )

Chernobyl is a bad example of "what could go wrong with a melt down" from nearly every perspective imaginable. The Soviet government was so interested in saving political face that it did nearly everything in it's power to CREATE the catastophe that the world witnessed.

You're right, though, the documentary was fascinating. The actions of the folks responsible for that disaster, from front to back, start to finish and soup to nuts left everybody with an IQ above room temperature shaking their fucking heads.
