On my way to work I was thinking about how the new emergency cooling system would function. I was worried because the system was very cheap compared to the other manufacturers.

I have night shifts I think it is the best because the lights make it feel like a stadium packed with fans roaring because of all the machinery.The test was scheduled at 12:30am. and it was already 1am. I rushed into the control-room to institute the test.The shutdown switches had to be turned off.I went to start the test ,because we had already experienced a delay.I had to keep an eye out on the newly trained supervisors .
