This is something different, a nuclear reactor operated by college students.
The Reed College Reactor Facility has been used for research and educational projects in the Portland area since its establishment in 1968. . . . The reactor is operated almost entirely by undergraduate students who are licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
It’s especially interesting to consider this juxtaposed with Reed’s reputation as a place “where students enjoy almost unlimited freedom to experiment openly with drugs”.
In any case, it’s reassuring to know that a “nuclear meltdown isn’t physically possible at a research reactor such as Reed’s”. (At least, that’s what they tell us.)
