Former Director of Los Alamos National Lab Says North Korea Has Potentially Flawed Reactor

Author: No Comments Share:

Siegfried Hecker is worried about a risky nuclear power plant in North Korea.  Hecker has visited the North’s main Yongbyon nuclear facility four times since 2004 and was the last foreign expert to visit the site in late 2010, said he was very concerned the reactor could be technically flawed.

Hecker said the biggest concern was that a seismic event could trigger a power cut at Yongbyon, drawing a comparison to the meltdown at the Fukushima plant in Japan last year.
