The incident did happen. In fact, they shut down an adjacent cold lab for 2 days because of the fear of leakage from the hot cells and re-opening required a special RWP for re-entry. For the first time in the history of the blog, I find it amazing that someone is trying to say that something released on the blog is "a hoax" and pulling out CFR documentation to say this event never happened. The silence is disturbing to me as I work in the building - lots of people work in RC-1 at TA-48. We all know this happened. Why "someone" or "some people" are trying to minimize this event is quite interesting. Please keep the post at the top. I think people are truly afraid of revealing any e-mail because this incident is being squelched and for fear of serious retaliation. The one poster describing the people who would want this covered up hit the nail on the head. Something IS being covered up.
