b'What about the love triangle/ murder-suicide rumor?I n 1961, an experimental reactor called SL-1 had a steam explosion. It killed three operators. There was a rumor that one of the men caused the accident on purpose because he found out his wife was having an affair. Evidence doesnt support this scenario. Post-accident investigations indicated the reactor was of primitive design, and operator logbook entries had noted that the central control rod had momentarily stuck in place during the previous six months. Coming from the accident were better reactor designs, material selections and conduct of operations.'
