Film That Used to be Shown Upon Graduation from Nuclear Power School

I just learned of a new resource called FedFlix that is part of the Internet Archive‘s efforts.  I was surprised to find a movie that I last saw when I graduated from U.S. Navy Nuclear Power School in 1979.  It describes the SL-1 Nuclear Reactor accident.  I tried to embed the video itself, but the system wouldn’t let me like it does with sources like YouTube.  So, follow the URL:
