Be Homer Simpson for a day

Now you can operate a nuclear reactor without a license. This game is worth a look. It's a sim of a civilian plant where you try to make a profit without endangering the neighbors. I haven't yet done very well at it. Not as easy to operate as a Navy nuke.
I'm not sure that it teaches the right lessons, however. It is much too easy to create severe core damage, and coolant flows don't seem to match power levels much. But the schematic is educational.
