Reliably Sealing Boric Acid in Nuclear
On April 26, 1986, the worst nuclear accident in recorded history occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine, former Soviet Union. Poor reactor design and operator errors led to a steam explosion that left the reactor core on fire and exposed to the environment.
