A mosaic of images were fitted together to show the interior of the inner shell of Hanford Tank AY-102 after waste was removed to learn more about why the inner shell was leaking. Radioactive waste held in the tank is suspected of corroding the bottom of the inner shell and leaking into the space between the tank's shells.
