Search For The Sun was interrupted by Springfield Action News when Kent Brockman informed about meltdown crisis at Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. They had Mr. Burns on phone who said that there is no mealtdown, but only "unrequested fission surplus". Professor Frink later informed that there are two circles around the plant. People in the first circle will be instantly killed. People in the second circle, which Frink and Kent were in, will experience a slower, considerably more painful death.
