There were no reports of damage to its two nuclear reactors, but the incident at the city's Baltic Shipyard, in the middle of Russia's second biggest city, renewed environmentalists' concerns over the experimental nuclear reactor baring barge. A release from the emergency services ministry reported the ...
It's been more than half a century since an experimental nuclear reactor at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory near Los Angeles suffered a partial nuclear meltdown, spewing radiation over a period of weeks. Private industry and government agencies followed that with repeated chemical spills, ...
The Monju power plant in Tsuruga, Fukui Prefecture, is one of two experimental nuclear reactors set up in the 1980s in Japan. The fast breeder reactor was designed to use the plutonium created as spent fuel by other reactors, thus maintaining a reliable power source for Japan's future. However, ...

Japan pulls plug on experimental nuclear reactor. It was hoped that the so-called "dream reactor" would burn a plutonium-uranium mix that would yield more plutonium. But the dream remains elusive and the plant faced too costly upgrades in the post-Fukushima era. Japan Kernkraftwerk ...
Japan has scrapped plans to generate electricity at a multi-billion dollar experimental nuclear reactor, the government said today, giving up on the decades-old project due to spiralling costs. Once touted as a "dream reactor," the Monju facility was designed to generate more fuel than it consumes ... nuclear reactor
THE decommissioning of Harwell's former nuclear research station has been mired in controversy after a High Court judge ruled the job had been awarded to the wrong company. The UK's Nuclear Decommissioning Authority is facing potential damages in the hundreds of millions after Justice Peter ...
On December 2, 1942, the world's first nuclear reactor was fired up in a subterranean squash court. But instead of a top-secret, sterile laboratory miles from civilization, the reactor went "critical" for the first time in a space directly beneath rows of football field bleachers at the heavily populated University ...

Japan has decided to scrap an experimental nuclear reactor that cost the equivalent of nearly £7 billion over 22 years - even though it was only operational for 250 days. Government ministers decided to decommission the trouble-plagued “Monju” fast-breeder reactor that had drained government finances ...
