Some H-Bomb and Reactor-Borm Radioactive Isotopes: their half-lives and emissions

A truck carrying plutonium dust from 'clean-up' efforts at the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons complex travels through Colorado Springs on its way to the Waste Isolation Pilot Platn (WIPP) in Southeast New Mexico. More than 40,000 radioactive waste shipments bound for WIPP are planned over the next 35 years. The trucks will be carrying transuranic and plutonium-contaminated waste from nuclear weapons production sites across the United States.

The waste shipments could grow to more than 80,000 if the Department of Energy opens the Yucca Mountain site in Nevada, slated to receive irradiated fuel rods from commercial nuclear reactors. The waste at both sites will remain radioactive for hundreds of thousands of years. Nukewatch staffer Bonnie Urfer and volunteer Yvonne Mills traveled to Denver to help in tracking the load (above) along Interstate 25.
