Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen on Unit 3: Because of the fact that a few pieces of nuclear fuel found offsite, it indicates to me that the fuel racks were lifted up. The only thing that could cause that is something called a prompt moderated criticality…

Host: But that’s what happened at Chernobyl?

Gundersen: Yes, very similar.
