Carroll Wilson's article, Nuclear Energy: What Went Wrong (Bulletin. June 1979), is both interesting and perceptive. He points out quite correctly that at least two of the most criticized areas at the back end of the fuel cycle--reprocessing and nuclear wastes--required much more attention than was given. Also he Points out that for nuclear power the whole cycle must work. His comments on control rooms are well taken in addition to his comparison to the vastly more complicated Boeing 747. The quality and training of operators have now been singled out for special criticism in the recent Kemeny Report on the Three Mile Island accident.
