Description

Check out this ad-free map of nuclear power plants worldwide and get an idea of how many there are already.

The following arithmetic made me create this app:
Scientists keep claiming that a worst-case scenario will happen only every 10,000 years. Sounds acceptable? It is an estimate for one nuclear power plant - but there are about 400 worldwide. Fukushima could have been anticipated by doing this calculation: 1986 + (10,000 / 400) = 2011. Who can say now it has been unpredictable?

Accidents that were classified on the INES scale appear as colored circles. White = no events; up to dark red = catastrophy.

Each location provides information about
• start of operation, year of planned shutdown
• gross output
• in-depth information on mobile wikipedia page
• news (wikipedia page history)
• overview of recent wikipedia changes
• worst recorded event (INES scale)
• type of reactor
• circle with configurable radius can be drawn around each plant

Thanks to Chris, CCM and especially my brother Ralf for helping me compiling the data.

Very Informative

Tacitdrop

Really quite nice! A lot of information. The app is really more than I expected. Thanks for putting this out.

Surprising…

It was surprising how little I knew. Pro: Informative…
Con: Favorites give name but not location. Location is essential as reference.

Very Informative App
