Diablo Canyon and the Future of Fault Line Nuclear Plants

Hosted by  • 

Diablo Canyon, on the coast west of San Luis Obispo, is California's last nuclear power station, supplying 10% of the state's electricity. On Sunday, Unit 2 shut down, leaving Unit 1 to operate by itself until the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, the PG&E, determines what went wrong.  John Timmer is Science Editor for Ars Technica, a website for technology news and information.
