Nuclear Reactor exploding

Main page mentions that Nuclear Reactor has chance of exploding, however it does not mention any clear indication of reactor going to explode nor is it cooling related or not.

It would help alot if there could be found some statistics what is chance of non cooled reactor to explode and how to make cooling that eliminates the chance of unhoped meltdown.

In addition to above MFS_Unit is very recommended to use to collect power output from Reactor.

Yeah, I could think something like that.

Also I did notice that without cooling reactor is almost certain to explode with less than one uranium used (4 fuel ingots), so running reactor without cooling is seriously unadviced unless you want to blow that place up.


I was wondering what the blast of the reactor would be, as in: how many TNT would equal it. Not I'm anxious, but just wondering, as I have never witnessed a nuclear blast.

Explosion Mechanics

Like nukes and TNT, does being submerged in water stop a reactor's explosion from damaging other blocks?

If so, submerging the reactor serves a dual purpose of preventing the explosion and preventing the damage.

Somebody said reactor evaporates nearby water after reaching certain temperature, so it a) would no longer cool it and b) would not stop the explosion --TakeruDavis 19:23, 13 October 2011 (CEST)
