Hanford's impact on nuclear history is now well documented. Today it is an enormous hazardous nuclear waste site. The good news is that the Department of Energy, that agency managing, the site has a number of gargantuan cleanup projects underway. The even better news is that they've been offering FREE public tours of the place since 2004.

I wrote about the Hanford Tour and my article appears in today's Seattle Times. Click the link to read it, then make a note to yourself to try and nab a spot on one of this year's tours. You won't regret it; and I can assure you, you'lll never forget it.
