On 07 July 2004 Muhammad el-Baradei, the head of the United Nations' atomic energy watchdog, met with Israeli energy officials to discuss ways of ridding the Middle East of nuclear weapons. He said he was ready to discuss Israel's concerns about Iran's nuclear ambitions. E...
Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, major NASA research center in the heart of Silicon Valley, CA. The huge hangar on the left is a 1930s-era US Navy dirigible hangar that housed the USS Macon. The two hangars on the right are 1940s-vintage and housed blimps. Hangar One (the one on the left) was going to be converted to a space and sciences center, but this was put on hold when toxic chemica...

There are many other sites I have not identified here - Anyone help?
HIFAR (High Flux Australian Reactor) was Australia's first nuclear reactor. It was built at the Australian Atomic Energy Commission (later ANSTO) Research Establishment at Lucas Heights.
Based on the DIDO reactor at Harwell in the UK, it is cooled and moderated by heavy water, and the fuel is enriched uranium metal. There is also a graphite neutron reflector surrounding the core. It is u...
For 20 years now, people are obstructing the planned Nuclear Waste Disposal Center at Gorleben - consisting of a drum storage for nuclear waste, the fuel element storage, the pilot conditioning plant and the ultimate nuclear waste dump.
It soon became clear that it was not a matter of self-interest of small-minded citizens from...
