LolOkay so I dug around and found some more info in the abandoned nuclear facility in/under Dawson Forrest. It was built in 1950 and remained operational until 1971. I was built as a joint project between the USAF and Lockheed Martin to test the idea of using nuclear power for planes. Certain details are apparently still top secret but what I can gather is that the reactor was suspended above a containment pool when in use. The process was " open air" so it would irradiate the surrounding area and they would test the effects and radiation level over time.
Apparently they concluded that RADIATION IS BAD
lol. Because all of the surrounding wildlife died and it is only in the last 20 years or so that things have returned to normal.
They also did tests on the effects of radiation on just about everything they had: vehicle , weapons you name it...
But here is the really interesting part when the. site was closed down in1971 it was totally flooded the official story is that the pumps that kept it from being flooded naturally went out. However I have seen multiple accounts that say a "no name " private company handled the Demo and it was flooded to keep secrets burried.
I am sorry if I hijacked your thread ; I just find this extremely interesting.
