The army first tried to develop a nuclear reactor that could be transported by rail car. As a result of poor design, while performing routine maintenance that involved manually repostioning control rods, a technician caused prompt criticality which resulted in a steam explosion and ejection of said control rod which pinned the technician to the ceiling of the containment room. Another technician who was present fled the scene but was exposed to so much radiation that he died within days.
