Thanks, interesting article. One wonders if they did get the extraction completed by October 2018.

That must have been a little freaky… At least she was in very shallow water, which makes working easier.

I am not sure how happy I would be being assigned to work around that thing. Supposedly it's no longer radioactive, but SFAIK all that means is that someone decided that the amount of radiation divers etc. would be exposed to would be within "acceptable" limits. (…).

True, that.

Of course that's also true if you are an astronaut, or a pilot or flight attendant (or other aircrew member), or an X-ray technician, or a jeweler, or you work in home construction, or mining, or excavating, or you wear a wristwatch with glow-in-the-dark dial, or walk outdoors or breath air.

Not saying that it wouldn't make me a bit nervous, too. But the key to dealing with those nerves is to gather information on how high the threshold of "acceptable radiation" is, vs. the level of background radiation that I was already accepting my day to day life, and then getting data on what they were actually measuring, and where.

You can assume that any remaining radiation from the test would be additional to any background radiation on the site. BTW, SFAIK any amount of ionizing radiation is bad for us, so we would want a little as possible and keep our fingers crossed.

I seem to remember seeing a side-on artist's view of PE at Bikini Atoll in a book and have failed to find it ever since. From what I remember she was painted white with vertical red stripes, I assume to show any distortion in the hull.

Anyone seen or remember this? Just looking to confirm it's not the Mandela effect and I'm not actually going mad!
