First saw this on RSOE EDIS tonight. Yeah!!!!



Iran has told inspectors it is unloading fuel from its Bushehr nuclear reactor, a sign of major problems, a U.N. nuclear watchdog says. The International Atomic Energy Agency released a report Friday on the Bushehr reactor. The agency said Iranian officials did not explain why they were removing fuel rods. The reactor, completed only recently, was hit by the Stuxnet computer worm, which was specifically designed to target Iran's nuclear program. Russia has called for an investigation of the worm, saying it could have caused a disaster. Several nuclear experts told the Times the trouble at Bushehr could be anything from minor problems to something that would effectively end the reactor's operations. "It could be simple and embarrassing all the way to 'game over,'" said David A. Lochbaum, a nuclear engineer at the Union of Concerned Scientists who once worked with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, said the problems might show Iran does not have the expertise to operate a nuclear reactor and said a disaster like the explosion at Chernobyl in Ukraine in 1986 might be a possibility.


Here is also an article I also found after a google news search.
