McMurdo's Old Nuclear Power Plant

I recently found a news story on a rash of cancers that has appeared in several Navy veterans who spent time at McMurdo Station in the 1960s and 1970s. During that time, the station was powered by a nuclear power plant, which apparently didn't work very well. Here is a link to the news story from WEWS in Cleveland, Ohio and here is a link to a special 20-minute video of the construction of the nuclear power plant. And rest assured that there is no longer a nuclear power plant here exposing all of us to radiation. :)
