Go nuclear!

My undergraduate alma mater is Kansas State University. Last night, a tornado tore through the campus, damaging many buildings where my friends and I had classes, but thankfully not injuring anyone:

Cardwell Hall, Burt Hall and the engineering complex were all damaged. Ward Hall, the home to K-State's nuclear reactor, was damaged. Staff has already covered the roof to protect the reactor, which officials say remains safe and unharmed. University cars were overturned and trees uprooted too.

Yes, in Kansas last night, a tornado hit a nuclear reactor. And there was no incident, no apparent danger, everything handled properly. I think that’s a good reminder that things can be engineered safely. Good work, K-State!
