Longing to Raise Nuclear Plant on Volcano

Article

Ah, the lovely Philippines, where not one speck of ground can be called stable. This is an active island arc. Can any volcano be called dormant? This plant was a total criminal job, you think they didn't skimp on the cement powder? But, they want to raise the Titanic, and run it through the icebergs again. Perhaps they can get it privately financed by California...

Nothing to do with the Phillipines or Geology but interesting none the less (imho) abandoned Russian Nuclear powered lighthouses!

Neat, I'm surprised the pictures didn't fog up!

They are not nuclear reactors they are RTG's same as they build for the space flights. The nuclear material would be very valuable if they could sell them. Plutonium 242 is one such material which is a red hot material that they put thermocouple type devices around them. They last for years. No this type of plutonium will not make a bomb.
