and how do you pronounce ‘Chernobyl’?

We read of plans to replace uranium with thorium as the fuel of choice for a new breed of nuclear power stations, and also the opinion of some that this replacement fuel is more acceptable because it is ‘safer’.

Seeing as the plans to produce a first working reactor by 2010 in Moscow, Ijust wonder if anyone recalls the last time any clown from the Soviet side of things said those immortal words:-

“Trust us, we’re just checking the Safety interlocks! “
