quote:Originally posted by DoctorBeaverOK - I know the principle of controlled nuclear reactions & that the control rods are used to regulate the flow of particles. But why is it that in most, if not all, of the nuclear reactor crisis films I've seen, the rods have to be pushed in very slowly & carefully by hand? Why can't they just all be whacked right in to shut the reactor down? Or is this simply Hollywood licence?
