Most of the controls I know of in a Nuclear Power plant that need Real Time control are also in any 'steam-powered' plant. Let that coal fire plant get out of control and it will blow up.. it just isnt as scary because people dont consider tons of acid rain, mercury, and other heavy metal contaminants as 'sexy' as 3 eyed fish and giant tarantulas.
