The accident began on Wednesday, Ma , and resulted in a partial core meltdown in Unit 2 of the nuclear power plant. Samuel Walker, a former U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission historian and author of 'Three Mile Island: A Nuclear Crisis in Historical Perspective,' discusses the partial meltdown at the Three.

    Mr. Walker talked about his book, Three Mile Island: A Nuclear Crisis in Historical Perspective, published by University of Ap Lessons from Chernobyl Accident of The health effects of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident are widely, but not universally, agreed to be very low. The American Nuclear Society concluded here that average local radiation exposure was equivalent to a chest X-ray, and maximum local exposure equivalent to less than a year's background radiation.
