Do NOT go breaking into known nuclear waste.
Note the readings were taken from OUTSIDE the structures.
1. Why aren't greater measures taken to keep kids out of nuclear waste?
2. Isn't it nice to know they did OPEN experiments irradiating pine trees, rats, parts and everything else within the "Dawsonville circle"? Living
things that reproduce. It is known that of the few things it didn't kill, it made some pine needles grow LONGER and some pines become susceptible to
Pine beetles. It also (for a fact) made one weed grow more. That's just what we need!
3. The stated radiated area (out to 4000ft) is exactly the circle area as seen on aerial maps. 0.7 miles across.
4.. Radiation just outside the structures was worse in the past.
5. The hot cell still is. Even outside.
6. You can bet in in not healthy inside!
7. I am unclear but I think the reactor IS STILL THERE!
The world is a whole lot smaller to me now, if you know what I mean.
Please do NOT go inside. Unless all the above sources are bogus, I do not think there's anything spectacular they are trying to hide. I don't think
it's a conspiracy. I think we can chock this one up to a cold war mistake. I'm surprised that much is admitted. I do wonder WHAT they are not
What interesting is every reference lets out ALL the things they were doing there. At least all the three, aircraft (or space craft) parts test,
simulated hit (rad not heat), and then the rats. (How do we know we haven't created mutant rats and other life there?)
I suppose we will never be able to gauge how much cancer and such was caused by the "experiments". Was any fallout spread into the atmosphere and
back to the people?
For the record, I had heard of this before. I could NOT find reference a few years ago. Now it seems known. I'm shocked.
I would think it to be a danger (at a distance!) now. I don't want to promote false assumptions. I just will not be poking around. It's the kind of
adventure I might have done too. Now I think wiser.
WHAT THE HECK IS A NUCLEAR WASTE SITE DOING IN A USED AND PUBLIC WILD LIFE MANAGEMENT AREA?
I can only guess it would be more dangerous to move it. SO LETS BETTER WARN KIDS BEFORE THERE NUTS FALL OFF, OR SOMETHING WORSE!
IF everything is on the up and up, you can go see it but I wouldn't break ANYTHING open. I sure would NOT advise a pregnant women to up there.
