Nuclear waste leaking at Hanford site in Washington, again

America's most contaminated nuclear site appears to have sprung another leak, just five miles from the Columbia River.

Two air monitor alarms went off in a demolition area of the Hanford Site's Plutonium Finishing Plant, causing workers to take cover less than a month after a tunnel collapse at the Richland, Washington facility, the Department of Energy-owned...

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.
