Canadian Reactor finally back online

A nuclear reactor based in Canada that has been shut down for 15 months has finally been reopened.

It has been under repair for the whole time and this week it was back up, there also is another reactor based in the Netherlands which has also been down and still is until hopefully being back up next month.

The reactor in Chalk River (Canada) makes molybdenum and from this place it has to be sent straight away directly to various hospitals and pharmacies as the radioactive metal has a ‘half life’ of around 66 hours.
