Alliance Tour of INL
Hop on the bus for a tour at INL!
One of the best ways to find out what’s happening at the Idaho National Laboratory is to GO SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.
That’s why the Snake River Alliance has always tried to organize timely and focused tours of the Site for our members and supporters.
The first tour of 2012 will be of what we’re calling “new mission” projects. There are still details to be ironed out, but here’s the scoop so far.
All day Tuesday, August 14, we will be at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies and the INL Research Center, both in Idaho Falls. We’re assuming we’ll see a fair amount of renewable energy, nuclear, and national security stuff. Some of their show-and-tell stuff might look a little like Google glasses.
Then all day Wednesday, August 15, we’ll see real world manifestations of the “new mission” at the Site itself. The Advanced Test Reactor, Hot Fuel Examination Facility, plutonium battery project, and Irradiated Materials Examination Laboratory are some of the possibilities. They’re all operated by Battelle, which is in the thick of the Governor’s Leadership in Nuclear Energy (LINE) Commission. We might even be able to swing in and check out some intensely radioactive spent fuel.
These would be two very full days. You could do one or both. If you don’t live in eastern Idaho, the Alliance might be able to arrange housing and transportation for you.
