Beatty Nevada nuclear waste sites

This post is for a friend of mine who inquired about the site.

Beatty Nevada is a nuclear waste disposal site for all types of nuclear waste.

Responds to 741120 request for Directorate of Regulatory Licensing to inspect AEC licensed waste burial sites on priority basis. Results of insps summarized.Measurements encl.

Its a nuclear waste site. i could find more but this pretty much covers it. There are some contamination in the city itself from low level radiation disposal but the high level stuff would be in a more secure location on the mountain. Byproduct material is material made in a nuclear reactor, isotopes of radiation. Radium comes under low level, which is rediculous but thats how the law was written.

1982 Report on Fuel Tanks and pipeline leaks at Pearl Harbor today causes oil in 1/8 of Honolulu’s water supply

0DTIC ADA119026: A-E Services to Perform a Cathodic Protection Survey of the Bulk Fuel Terminals at N.S.C. Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Volume II. page 660

Pearl Harbor is an ecological disaster area thanks to the US Navy and their leaking oil tanks that rest on the aquifer – leaking since at least 1982 according to Navy report.

Volume 1 is located at this link , it includes maps of the sites. Volume 1 maps are below:

DTIC ADA119026: A-E Services to Perform a Cathodic Protection Survey of the Bulk Fuel Terminals at N.S.C. Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Volume II. This documents each leak and its position in the pipeline that also includes the water pipeline and the tanks of oil that are on top of the aquifer.

The Navy is also censoring all mention of the crisis as Dec 7th comes along the 80th Anniversary of the Bombing of Pearl Harbor but what are the survivors going to drink as the tap water is now toxic. The NAVY screwed up, again and instead of addressing the leaking oil tanks and pipeline they let it fester and now 1/8 of Honolulu’s water supply is contaminated with oil. The Navy is distributing bottled water and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for their PR and the people are appalled at the results.



Nuclear Reactors in Space and the California Nuclear Disaster of 1959

Santa Susana Nuclear Disaster America’s China Syndrome, nuclear cloud spread over Simi and San Fernando Valleys

With the recent press about placing a nuclear reactor on the moon, the environmentalists are reacting to this as if it was a new thing. Neil Armstrong armed a nuclear reactor on the Moon during the Apollo 11 landing which is still in operation on the moon. It is used as a measuring device to measure the distance from the earth to the moon and thus help in navigating in space.

Boeing and Atomics International developed the SNAP reactors at Santa Susana which is in the hills just south of Simi Valley. One of the reactors melted down in 1959 causing the largest and most deadly nuclear accident in US history if you don’t count the nuclear tests. Here is a documentary explaining what happened when the nuclear reactor, the salt cooled reactor melted down and exploded causing a radioactive cloud to encompass Simi Valley and across San Fernando Valley. There was no containment, no shielding.

Also they burned radioactive waste so that it would be dispersed on the wind because the red tape made it “impractical” to bury it properly in disposal sites. Note that again this smoke was deposited over Simi and San Fernando Valleys.

4 reactors blew up over the course of many years of the SNAP reactor project. The reactors were being developed for spacecraft and airplanes. The airplane engine program was halted when the military decided it was a bad idea because if a plane crashes, we would have just given the enemy a working nuclear reactor.

Reactors for Space

Film: First Nuclear Reactor In Space 71502
From Internet Archive:
“Made in 1965 by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, this rare film discusses the design of SNAP-10A, an experimental nuclear reactor launched into space in 1965. The Systems Nuclear Auxiliary Power Program (SNAP) reactor was developed under the SNAPSHOT program overseen by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.

SNAP-10A was launched from Vandenberg AFB by an ATLAS Agena D rocket on April 3, 1965 into a polar low Earth orbit altitude of approx. 1,300 km. Its nuclear electrical source, made up of thermoelectric elements, was intended to produce over 500 watts of electrical power for one year. After 43 days, an onboard voltage regulator within the spacecraft — unrelated to the SNAP reactor — failed, causing the reactor core to be shut down, after reaching a maximum output of 590 watts. The reactor was left in a 700-nautical-mile (1,300 km) earth orbit for an expected duration of 4,000 years. In November 1979 the vehicle began shedding, eventually losing 50 pieces of traceable debris. The reasons were unknown, but the cause could have been a collision. Although the main body remains in place, radioactive material may have been released. ”

The following is from “NUCLEAR SPACE POWER SYSTEMS,” H. M. DIECKAMP Vice President, Engineering; ATOMICS INTERNATIONAL A Division of North American Aviation, Inc. P. 0. Box 309 Conoga Park, California ISSUED: SEPTEMBER 1967

“The first nuclear power system in space was SNAP 3B, a 2.7-watt radioisotope unit fueled by Pu [Plutonium], which was launched in June 1961. The first reactor power system in space was SNAP 10A, a 500-watt unit, which was launched m April 1965. To date, five radioisotope units with power levels up to 25 watts and one 500-watt reactor unit have been used in the U. S. Space Program.” page 19

SNAP 27 Nuclear Reactor for NASA’s Apollo Missions

Re-entry vehicle for nuclear fuels

NASA planned on regular missions to fuel a space station where they would send nuclear fuel up to orbit and back down again. This involved creating a device that could land and safely return the fuel elements of a reactor without breaking. This led to the creation of the Space Shuttle. The question is how much nuclear materials were on the Space Shuttles that crashed to the earth and should the local populations of the crash sites be concerned?

Concept drawing for a device to return nuclear fuel back to earth safely by gliding it in just like what would eventually be the Space Shuttle.

Howard Center Oakland A’s stadium site was GE’s port of entry for Nuclear Reactor Fuel Rods

Nuclear Regulatory Commission has several surviving documents on General Electric moving Nuclear Reactor Fuel Rods to and from the Oakland Howard Terminal from its Vallecitos Nuclear Center near Pleasanton California where they were regularly shipping nuclear reactor fuel rods to Europe and back to be irradiated and tested. This is just one of the reports from May 18 1984:

Requests route approval per 10CFR73,for shipment of spent irradiated reactor fuel from Oakland to Pleasanton, CA.

Alameda County approves Howard Terminal as site for Oakland A’s new stadium November 7 2021 https://www.5thnews.com/2021/11/alameda-county-approves-howard-terminal_418.html
They are awaiting an Environmental Impact Statement, I wonder if they know the history of the Port of Oakland and nuclear waste?

Polaris Missiles launched at Hunters Point Shipyard into SF Bay tested by Westinghouse Sunnyvale CA 1959

Westinghouse Electric Corporation Annual Report 1959 ANNUAL REPORT
WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC CORPORATION-3 Gateway Center, Pittsburgh 22, Pennsylvania

Westinghouse Electric Corporation Annual Report 1959 ANNUAL REPORT
WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC CORPORATION-3 Gateway Center, Pittsburgh 22, Pennsylvania

“Dummy Polaris missile is blasted skyward, then quickly arrested by cables as part of “Operation Skycatch” at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard. In earlier tests, the dummy missiles were hurled into San Francisco Bay, then retrieved. Under the new method, a huge overhead assembly catches the multi-ton dummy in mid-air, simplifying the retrieving procedure and also permitting accurate study of the effects of launch stresses on dummy missiles which are structurally identical to an actual Polaris. The tests are being conducted by engineers from Westinghouse and the Lockheed Missiles and Space Division in conjunction with the U. S. Navy. Westinghouse is prime contractor for launching equipment, and Lockheed is Polaris missile system prime contractor and manager.”

Before all of the cleanups, and while the US Navy’s Radiological Defense Lab was conducting its radiation experiments all over Hunters Point Shipyard, the Navy was firing off Polaris Missiles spreading the radiation all over the Bay View Hunters Point neighborhood thus causing the highest levels of breast cancer in the world for child bearing age African American Women.

https://sfbayview.com/tag/highest-incidence-rates-of-invasive-breast-cancer-in-the-world/

This is what happens when the Navy keeps things to themselves and refuses to acknowledge the truth, they did this to the people of San Francisco and they should be made to pay for what they have done to the unsuspecting victims of their polution.

Burbank CA Nuclear Accident January 18 1968 Placing a Demon Core on a Lathe

US. Nuclear Corporation in Burbank California had a problem, without any authorization they decided to try to remove the outer casing of a Plutonium Beryllium device that produced Neutrons, a DEMON CORE that was used for training in the US Navy for sailors to train to find atomic bombs and this training was on every ship and base including at Treasure Island.

They placed the core onto a Lathe which is used to spin wood or metal to make rounded cuts into objects, just as if you were to make a staircase knob, you cut into it as it spins to make rounded objects. So naturally they decided to do this with the most dangerous thing in the world a Demon Core of Plutonium and Beryllium.

When the Atomic Energy Commission was tipped off about this incident by an anonymous source they came into the facility where the US Nuclear Corporation employees had just bought an industrial vacuum cleaner to clean up the site. They also failed to mention the accident to the AEC as required by law (see below)

Yeah that would not cut it.

Range of possible Plutonium Contamination from the Burbank Nuclear Disaster January 18, 1968

The Demon Core was made popular in the movie “Fat Man and Little Boy” which combined two separate incidents where the scientists at Los Alamos were showing off and caused fission to take place killing in each case the show off scientist. It should be noted that spinning plutonium at high speed is not something that you want to do.

The Pu-Be core was made with pellets of Plutonium and the Berylium reflects the neutrons so you can create measured levels of neutron radiation, the radiation of fission found in nuclear reactors and atomic bombs. The US Navy Radiological Defense Lab had two of these devices as of 1960 which were about the size of a casing for a old movie projector and they used it to bombard ships with it to see how far into a ship the neutron radiation would penetrate, in order to make ships safer. When they turned it on they made sure everyone was in a separate building in shielding to protect themselves from the radiation. Not the public, just them. It is the same radiation found in a nuclear power plant or a nuclear detonation.

US Nuclear Corporation decided all on their own without any authorization to divide up the Plutonium into smaller amounts to make more devices.

List of Underground Storage Tanks in DC including the Washington Post which depends on Congress to protect it from the EPA

It is a PDF file.

The Washington Post Building is a toxic nightmare, mostly petroleum from leaking Underground tanks, they sold the site to Fannie Mae. Most of Washington appears to be a sea of oil and gasoline contamination. Amazing with all of the smoking it did not go up in flames.

Most printing plants are toxic waste sites. It would be interesting to see which papers are affected. Certainly all the major newspapers that have been in business since the 20th century would be affected. Ny Times? Boston Globe?

The San Francisco Chronicle is compromised as is all Hearst Publications due to the chemical contamination of their former printing plant in San Francisco.

They certainly need to come clean on this.
