I'm going to build a reactor, that's for sure.
— Ron Ziegler

Apollo 13, as you may remember, gave us a reactor that is bubbling away right now somewhere in the Pacific. It's supposed to be bubbling away on the moon, but it's in the Pacific Ocean instead.
David R. Brower reactors quote

Even if you build the perfect reactor, you're still saddled with a people problem and an equipment problem.
— David R. Brower

What happens when the guy who runs the reactor gets out of bed wrong or decides, for some reason, that he wants to override his instruction sheet some afternoon?
— David R. Brower

Obviously, I'm not looking in the core of the reactor, but I am looking at what, at that time, was considered the source of the trouble, which was the water and where it was.
