Three Mile Island - Day Seven - April 3, 1979

"Relief and a measure of optimism prevail this morning near the site of the Three Mile Island nuclear plant. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials are still convinced that the size of the large gas bubble inside the reactor has diminished. And as the bubble gets smaller so does the threat of a dangerous core meltdown." - Diane Sawyer, report.

The Seventh Day of the crisis. Calm was slowly starting to return, but the Hydrogen bubble is still a mystery. Schools within a five mile radius are opening and there was cautious optimism. Even the news was quietly removing the crisis to the back pages. The question was what was the extent of damage to the reactor and if it would ever be re-opened.

And then the blame game started.
