    Some highlights:
    * unbelievable attention paid to safety!
    * built on sturdy land, built three times stronger than a normal building to withstand earthquakes easily.
    * containment built of two meter thick concrete (thank goodness that’s holding the molten mass of uranium there now!)
    * pressure vessel made from 16 cm sheets heated to a moldable temperature. (that’s what the uranium burned through)
    * Fukushima is a thriving , healthy community (now a ghost town)
