  1. You said: ” The dangerous control rods are dropped into the core…” Control rods are not dangerous. They are the opposite, they are used to moderate, or control the flux of neutrons, and thus the nuclear reaction. In an emergency if the control rods are fully inserted they stop the chain reaction by reducing the neutron flux to a level at which the nuclear chain reaction is no longer self sustaining. They drop in by gravity, not power is needed. Control rods are a safety feature and not dangerous at all.
