KCLS Online Program: TECH Talk: Atomic Washington-Our Nuclear Past, Present and Future @ KCLS Online Program
Oct 27 @ 6:00 pm
KCLS Online Program: TECH Talk: Atomic Washington-Our Nuclear Past, Present and Future @ KCLS Online Program |  |  |

For adults and teens.
Presented by writer Steve Olson, author of The Apocalypse Factory: Plutonium and the Making of the Atomic Age. 
At the center of every nuclear weapon in the United States is a small pit of radioactive material manufactured at a top-secret facility in Eastern Washington, a facility which today remains the most radiologically contaminated site in the Western hemisphere.
But Washington State’s role in the nuclear era ranges far beyond the construction, operation and ongoing cleanup of the Hanford nuclear reservation. Today, Washington has two operating nuclear reactors, one of which provides us with 10% of our electricity. Radioactive substances are used in our state to cure diseases, build airplanes, detect pollutants and power smoke detectors. Further, Naval Base Kitsap has the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons deployed anywhere in the country.
Drawing from history, science and popular culture, author Steve Olson reveals the many influences of nuclear materials on Washington State, and the many ways in which our state has been a pioneer in the atomic age.
