"In other words, this sort of thing has been operating safely for about 50 years now."

Sure, unless you count: K-19, K-11, K-27, K-140, K-429, K-222, K-123, K-314, K-431, K-192, K-8, K-386, TK-208, K-279, K-447, K-508, K-208, K-210, K-216, K-316, K-462, K-38, K-37, K-371, and K-367.

Those are submarines which experienced nuclear accidents from just the Northern Fleet of the former Soviet Union and Russia. Too lazy to look for the Pacific fleet accidents..
