    EBR-1 site in Idaho

    My wife and I just got back from a vacation in Montana and Idaho. We drove by the site of EBR-1 the first nuclear power plant, unfortunately time didn't allow for a stop at the museum beings we didn't even know this place exsited. Any way INL is also within that same area, I quoted a introduction to the facility below. Anyway some pretty top secret high tech stuff going on there. None the less it was pretty Erie driving through the area.


    THE NATIONíS NUCLEAR ENERGY LABORATORY

    WELCOME TO THE LAB
    P-8626-10
    Mark Peters, Director, INL
    On behalf of our outstanding staff, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Idaho National Laboratory.

    "At INL every day, some of the nationís finest minds conduct vital research that allows us to sustain and develop nuclear energy technologies, scale other clean energy technologies, protect critical infrastructure, support national defense and homeland security, bolster cyber security, and make sure nuclear materials do not fall into the wrong hands."

    Advanced Test Reactor Complex lies within INLís 890 square-mile area in a remote part of the Idaho desert. The complex is 47 miles west of Idaho Falls.

    The complex includes several other advanced nuclear energy capabilities including: the Advanced Test Reactor-Critical Facility; Test Train Assembly Facility; Hot Cell Facility; Radiation Measurements Laboratory; Radiochemistry Laboratory; and the Safety and Tritium Applied Research Facility.

    ENHANCING NATIONAL SECURITY
    NATIONAL & HOMELAND SECURITY
    Threats posed by global terrorism, the proliferation of nuclear materials, and the vulnerability of U.S. critical infrastructure have continued to evolve in complexity.

    INLís isolated site, test bed infrastructure, and applied-science focus make it a major center for national security technology development and demonstration.

    INLís National & Homeland Security programs protect nuclear material from proliferation, advance the nationís war fighters, address secure communications channels for first responders and improve the security and resilience of critical infrastructure.

    You would not believe the waste out there. I was told they will bury anything that comes in contact to long with radiation. Entire cnc milling machines only months old just buried in the ground. What a waste. Id love to go tour it. I hear they pay amazing but your only allowed to work X amount of days then forced to take vacation because of the radiation. Pretty wild.
