1,000 Big Year: It’s hard to write when you’re stupid

Drafting 1,000 words is hard enough but some days I hit a barrier that requires going back into the research books. Today I wrote:

Everyone talks about “containment” protecting reactors. The term sounds simple: protective overpants preventing radioactive spillage if a disaster strikes.
But what does it REALLY mean? Why isn’t it obvious to me which of the world’s reactors have containment or not? Is “containment” a fuzzy term that hides more than it shows?
