This thread has a glow of success to it
A cool and historic site well worth the visit.
Pre-cold war and cold war relics are some of the best UE sites there are.
The money and man hours invested in them is incalculable.
Their legacy is very much with us today and will for many millenniums...

This is pornography.

This is pornography.


And not that cheap "you" kind of stuff either.

Great pictures. Absolutely love the control panels, knobs, cables. Amazing quality of pictures as well. Fantastic job!

Really, really cool. Thanks for sharing. It's great that Hanford is now part of a National Park, so we'll all have a chance to enjoy this amazing place.

Glad somebody created a thread on this.

A friend and I went on the B Reactor "tour" in 2016. Super-mega-highly recommended, especially if you're any kind of history/science/technology geek. I put "tour" in quotes because they basically bring you to the building and turn you loose. There are scheduled talks in different areas, but it's otherwise unstructured, and you can just show yourself around. That was a pleasant surprise--very much a UE-er's tour format.

If you're interested in going, start watching the tour registration page in March:
http://manhattanpr...actor.hanford.gov/

Somewhere between March and April, registration will suddenly open and suddenly fill up, so you have to be vigilant about checking the page or you'll be waiting another year.

In addition to the B Reactor tour, there are other Hanford tours that, for example, take you to the cleanup sites and explain the work going on. I'm hoping to go back and do one of those this next year.

This is where my dad and his family come from. His little brother died of cancer—he used to work here and his family seems to cite his days working at the plant as a strong reason.

Beautiful pictures. I’d love to visit myself.

When they do, would anyone from this thread be down to do a trip together? It could be an official event, or just a whatever meander. Tbh I don't even know if I could go; I'm in school and working, plus I live on the wrong side of the Columbia and don't drive. But I like the idea of it.

I recently managed a (legit) VIP tour of a Palo Verde reactor during a refueling outage. I went into containment (where the core was disassembled) and ran around, but the coolest part was visiting the spent fuel pool, where I literally saw glowing fuel rods. Apparently right after removal is the best time to see them as they're hottest, radioactively speaking. I wish it was something I could share with others, an incredible experience and opportunity. I want to visit this place now so that I can contrast the differences.
