There is the mistaken impression that our nuclear plants would follow the same paradigm of Chernobyl. Our systems are very different from the Soviet graphite block systems. Crashing a nuclear plant in our country wouldn't result in the same type of catastrophe as Chernobyl, though it would be very serious but over a much smaller area.

Thanks for the info. Are they secure facilities? How easily could one get in there with a bomb. And if they did, would it cause enough damage to create some sort of meltdown?
