  1. Rod, in this podcast you mention computer simulations that let the user pretend to operate a nuclear power plant. Do you know of any such programs that are available for download, or are these really expensive private pieces of software that are held onto as tightly as possible?

  2. Daniel:

    One simulator that I have heard about for several years, but not actually used myself is available at http://www.ae4rv.com/index.htm

    It is designed for a Windows PC or Pocket PC. I am a Mac guy (thought I have to use a Windows machine at work) so I do not have the right machines to try it out. The flash demo on the web looks pretty interesting.

    It is a bit simplistic, but then, a properly designed reactor is pretty easy to operate.
