GE atomic swimmer robot keeps tabs on nuclear reactors

The Stinger is designed to inspect nuclear reactors without the need of a human team inside the containment vessel

One truism of nuclear reactors is that you really don’t want to be next to one. Unfortunately, reactor cores need to be inspected and maintained, which means teams of workers going inside the containment vessel. It’s an operation that’s not only hazardous, but expensive and time consuming. In an effort to make such inspections safer, cheaper, and faster, GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy has developed the Stinger; a free-swimming, remote-controlled robot that replaces humans for cleaning and inspecting reactor vessels.

Drake Wears “Free Meek Mill” Shirt During OVO Fest Rehearsal

Earlier today, in preparation for his 2015 OVO Fest performance, Drake was spotted wearing a black “Free Meek Mill” tee during his sound check at the Molson Canadian Amphitheater in Toronto. The shirt, designed last year during Meek Mill’s incarceration is the latest jab from the OVO rapper.

Unlike his first two responses, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back” Freestyle, Drake has decided to hold back on the diss tracks and poke fun at his enemy in other ways after hearing Meek’s diss track last Thursday night. On Saturday, during a charity kickball game in the Six, Drizzy took a shot at Meek by telling a cameraman before the game, “I haven’t taken a loss all week.”

We doubt the drama will stop here between both MC’s, especially after Drake was caught today with the “Free Meek Mill” tee, but we’ll just have to wait and see happens next between these two, so stay tuned with XXL for all the last minute updates, and check out Drake below trolling Meek with his tee.
