Los Alamos Plutonium Workers Tell All


Plutonium Workers Share Experiences

This 50 page article from the Los Alamos Science magazine issue number 23 published in 1995. Several past and present plutonium workers employed at Los Alamos National Laboratories spanning from the time of the Manhattan Project in the early 1940’s to then present times in 1995 were asked to share personal experiences of working with plutonium, each of the participants were involved in accidents resulting in the accumulation of plutonium in their bodies. Los Alamos, during the Manhattan Project, in 1944  is where plutonium was put into the pure metallic form used to build and atomic bomb. It is still one of the few places where plutonium is handled today.
