the 1970's, were either life-changing or very little in some people's minds. Some examples of historical events are : John Paul II Becomes Pope This was a very glorious day for all of Poland's people, Polacy. This day, was the day that a Polish Pope was selected. John Paul the Second(Jan Pawel Drugi), was one of the most welcoming pope's there has been. Nuclear Accident at Three Mile Island The Three Mile Island accident was a partial nuclear meltdown which occurred in one of the two United States Three Mile Island nuclear reactors in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, on March 28, 1979. It was the worst accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history. The partial meltdown resulted in the release of small amounts of radioactive gases and radioactive iodine into the environment. Epidemiology studies have not linked a single cancer with the accident. The power plant was named after the island on which it was situated, and was owned and operated by General Public Utilities and Metropolitan Edison (Met Ed). The reactor involved in the accident, Unit 2, was a pressurized water reactor manufactured by Babcock & Wilcox. Slang / Cool Language I'm trippin: going nuts
