What I saw on my visit to Chernobyl

February 9, 2017 @ 11:00 pm - February 10, 2017 @ 2:00 am

Co-sponsored by: dobos.s.p@ieee.org

In October, 2016, Mr. Vaglia was fortunate enough to be asked to give presentations in Budapest and Kiev.  While in Kiev, he arranged for a visit to the exclusion zone around the failed Chernobyl nuclear power plant.  His visit was 30 years after the accident, but only a few weeks before the new containment building was pushed into place around the failed unit.  Mr. Vaglia will present what he saw, provide an overview of the RBMK type reactors, and what went terribly wrong the night of the accident.  Lastly, he will touch on how Ukraine is generating power today, and what they are looking toward in the future.

Speaker(s): David J. Vaglia,

Location:
Bldg: One (Center)
