Uncertainty Around Zero - The Maple Story


This is a nice background on the Maple story. It turns out that they made an absolute promise of having a negative power coefficient, but that the uncertainties of their calculations were really quite high. Thus, you are futzing around zero within your uncertainty fuzz. When it came out a bit above zero, all regulatory hell broke loose. I'm a bit alarmed that they didn't brace the fuel bundles, like the Koreans, since they are in the SEISMIC DEATH PIT OF HELL, but who cares? The things aren't on.

Oops, I forgot, I'm not writing...
