Submission + - Japan to create a nuclear meltdown (nbcnews.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: Japanese researchers are to start an experiment to better understand what transpires during a nuclear meltdown by attempting to create a "_controlled_ nuclear meltdown.

Using a scaled down version of a nuclear reactor, ~ essentially a meter long stainless steel container, ~ the experiment will involve the insertion of a foot long (30 cm) nuclear fuel rod, starts the fission process, and then follows by the draining of the coolant.

This experiment is scheduled to take place later this year.
