That's a good point, there should be public tours through nuclear power sites so people can learn something and get used to how safe they are.

When I was in 4th grade I went on tours to a hydro and a thermal powerplant, yet I'm not sure most Brazilian parents would be OK with their kids visiting a nuke. Who knows how long would it take to revert the ecoterrorist brainwashing to the extent of making most people at least look at nukes from a non-biased perspective...

How do you give a tour of something that fits in a shipping container [if done properly]?

You walk around the shipping container look at the knobs and meters and show your geiger detector not making much more noise than background.

I believe they stopped giving tours because of nutcases doing stupid things inside the tour. Unless you're japanese tourist in a satellite assembly area, most people respond negatively to wearing bunny suits and booties.

There should be an exhibit where one can hold radioactive uranium to show how relatively harmless it is. All this fear of "waste" with long half-lifes is silly.

At minimum science classes should be teaching the facts about the relative safety of these materials when they cover radioactive decay in class so that children aren't manipulated by anti-nuke groups and rhetoric. Maybe they can even have 1 more tool to spot when corrupt media is lying to them (which is whenever their lips are moving).

Quite boring compared to the tour at the coal powerplant that I went.

I mean, they give tours in the Chernobyl control room. The worst nuclear accident in history, and it's safe enough to visit.

As far as Chernobyl goes, I'm sure most people are attracted to the tragic aspects than to the place or the tech itself.

That would be the issue with this type of reactor, they are boring
