The Three Mile Island accident at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant in Pennsylvania was "the single most important event in the fifty-year history of nuclear power regulation in the United States". Many people have seen the event as a turning point for the nuclear power industry in the United States. The Three Mile Island power station is near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

      The Three Mile Island (TMI) accident was a partial core meltdown of the Three Mile Island nuclear generating station on Ma in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. The nuclear power plant released about P Bq of noble gases, mainly Xe and G Bq of I were released into the atmosphere (UNSCEAR, ).Cited by: Three Mile Island Accident The Three Mile Island power station near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania caused part of the core to melt in the Unit 2 reactor. It started by a minor malfunction in the secondary cooling circuit which made the primary coolant to rise. This caused the reactor.
