“The China Syndrome” is a 1979 nuclear power plant disaster film released on March 16, 1979.

12 Days Later on March 28, 1979, the “Three Mile Island” nuclear power plant disaster occurred.

After an investigation, a “partial meltdown” story was released to the press on the same day that the Russian Nuclear disaster “Chernobyl” was discovered by surveillance satellites.

The “China Syndrome” and “Three Mile Island” paralleled each other closely, both had the following:

  1. Confusion over valve status due to a critical user interface problems.
  2. Mechanical parts being stuck.
  3. The reactor suffering damage.
  4. Very little radiation leakage.
  5. No deaths, injuries or significant damage except to the plant itself.

Both the movie and the real disaster came close to a full core meltdown. Such an event would potentially kill thousands.

Michael Douglas stated: “Incredible”, “I can’t put it together. It’s disturbingly ironic,”

The real TV news reporting of the disaster had eerily similar scenes to that from the movie. Michael Douglas stated: “It was a religious awakening”, “I felt it was God’s hand.”
