Heavier than 3 whales! Key component of China’s nuke reactor installed

Heavier than 3 blue whales! A key component of China’ s advanced nuke reactor has been put in place in Shandong Province.

The jumbo part has the weight of 610 tons, the equivalent of about 3.5 blue whales.

Builders say the reactor can shut down safely in the event of an emergency without causing core meltdown or large leak of radiation.
