History buffs have a new way to explore decades of work at the Department of Energy’s nuclear sites from the start of the atomic age through current environmental cleanup.
DOE has posted a new timeline on the internet with photos and videos of hundreds of events over more than seven decades.
It begins with the 1942 start of the Manhattan Project, the race to create an atomic bomb during World War II. And it continues through the January removal of the Plutonium Recycle Test Reactor at Hanford.
The timeline is posted at energy.gov/em/em-historical-timeline.
