    Good to know that after the 1959 Santa Susana Field Lab's liquid sodium reactor disaster in Los Angeles, the engineers implemented more stringent welding procedures for similar experiments.

    I love that there always seems to be "some guy" standing around watching with a clipboard or notebook like he's taking continuous notes on the process being performed. Looks good in the publicity pics anyway. In this case it looks like Nick Nolte!

    It is Nick Nolte, born 1941 and 6'1"......not all actors wait the big break as bussboys or waiting tables.
