Kodak incredibly housed nuclear reactor for 30 years5/14/2012
For more than 30 years, Kodak headquarters in Rochester, N.Y., was home to a small nuclear research reactor containing three-and-a-half pounds of uranium. Used to check chemicals and other materials for impurities, the reactor wasn't strictly a secret at Kodak, but most people in the Rochester community had no idea they had a californium neutron flux multiplier in their midst. Kodak officials have said the device was perfectly safe and no problems had occurred before it was shut down five years ago. The highly enriched uranium was removed to a federal facility in South Carolina in a hush hush operation, lest it fall into the wrong hands.
