In this 360/VR video, Motherboard takes you inside the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station, just outside Toronto, which provides 20 percent of Ontario’s electricity. Stand next to the giant turbines. Hover on the edge of the glowing waste pool, where used-up nuclear fuel is kept. And go inside the control room that oversees everything around the clock, 24/7.
Called “the Big Kahuna” of nuclear plants, Darlington is undergoing a $12 billion refurbishment so it can keep supplying nuclear energy to the grid for another 40 years. Public tours ended after 9/11 due to security concerns, but we are taking you inside.
