The first “Quick Look” video examination, July 21, 1982, is recalled as a dramatic event by those present, and by many who only heard others tell of it. “There were many exclamations of surprise, disbelief, and confirmation,” as the video camera was lowered below the level of the top of the core without anything at all coming into view (ref. 12, ch. 5, p.13). The camera was able to see only 3 inches (8 cm) ahead, due to its small size, incorporating lens and light in one unit, and the turbidity of the water in the reactor vessel. Not until five more feet (1.5 m) of cable had been paid out did the operator call out, “Got something!”—rubble lying at the bottom of the cavity in the core (ref. 18, p.40).
JANE RICKOVER appeared before me and swore as to the truth of the above statement.
Dated at Toronto this 18th day of July 1986
