Caption: Nuclear reactor meltdown. Water-cooled nuclear fission reactor going into meltdown. Control rods are fused in position, and the concrete containment vessel is beginning to glow due to the high temperatures. This is an emergency and potential disaster as it could lead to the release of radioactive material into the atmosphere and the surrounding environment.
