Hanford, WA, USA..THe central control panels in the control room of the B-Reactor at the Hanford Site, Washington, along the banks of the Columbia River. ..The reactor was the first large scale plutonium production reactor ever built and started production in December, 1944. The project was commissioned under the Manhattan Project, during World War II, to develop the first nuclear weapons. The B-Reactor was shut down in 1968 and on August 25th, 2008, was declared a National Historic L

Visitors explore models of the two vacuum chambers measuring four kilometers in length, and built to contain lasers, at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) at the Hanford Site in Richland, Washington, U.S., on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016. Scientists have discovered the existence of gravitational waves, tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time, which have long been predicted but never before been seen or measured.
