On 30 September, 1999, workers at a nuclear plant in Tokaimura, Japan poured the wrong solution into a precipitation tank, achieving criticality and causing a frightening blue flash

Today, Japan's nuclear power plants (situated on highly earthquake prone land) produce more electricity than goes through the entire electricity grid in Australia - and yet this remains their worst accident related to nuclear power.
