Interesting article on the Fukushima nuclear meltdown.

Short version: despite appearances, not really that bad, the plant was very well designed, and even after massive cascading failures, the fallout (so to speak) should be minimal.

ETA: the only engineering mistake Japan made in building their nuclear plants was a pretty basic mistake: they built them in Japan.
