Just to clear it up, a nuclear power plant isn't a bomb or anything. There is a possibility of a meltdown I guess but they are usually contained in a huge concrete thing around the reactors. That stuff is monitored like crazy too, so there's a really slim chance of anything happening. The whole time I've lived in the area, I haven't heard of any accidents there.
yep, nuclear power is essentially a steam engine connected to a giant generator. although the steam is created by splitting atoms under water.

very true, the plants themselves are safe, although the uranium is not.

How old is your friend? I'm 19. And this is a big step up from minimum wage of around $5-something I've been making. Generally co-ops receive raises every successive work semester, so I will probably be making around that on my third rotation.
