Freshly posted video animation directly addresses post-Fukushima safety concerns as resolved by a Gen III+ reactor, in this case an AREVA EPRTM reactor. Includes animation showing redundant safety systems, core catcher, hydrogen recombiners, double-hulled building, etc.

Video also steps through how the reactor generates electricity.
