Blowing things up is not something that I can think as a safe way to
cool down a nuclear reactor. Plus, if blowing up things would have
solved things, they'd have left hydrogen to accumulate, or the
recurring explosions would have solved that.

On the contrary, the hydrogen explosions caused the leaking of the
cooling polls and the fires of the used fuel rods.

Thereś an easier, more obvious solution: GRAVITY. A huge water tank in
a separate building, with a manual valve, and with a higher
above-the-ground level than the rest of the plant, so you manually
turn the valve and the water flows...

"KISS" - Keep it simple, st++id :)

PS: As designers resigned over Mark I design concerns, I wonder why
nobody is talking about suing GE for damages and criminal conduct, for
withholding that safety and design concerns information from the
