Nuclear Safety


300 Area in 1944

While no contamination was released by today’s tunnel collapse at Hanford, it’s very much worth noting that the infrastructure that is supposedly keeping our the radioactive legacy of our nuclear program safe is slowly crumbling or was never properly erected in the first place.

And if you want an incredibly sobering discussion of how similar the safety conditions between the American and Soviet plutonium programs were, I highly recommend Kate Brown’s Plutopia, one of the best histories written in the last decade.
