The knowledge offered by the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council and Technology Innovation Program is a must for those folks keen on understanding Rocketdyne contamination.
Worst meltdown in U.S. history happened 30 miles northwest of L.A. for two weeks from July 13-26, 1959. Meltdown spewed hundreds of times more radiation than Three Mile Island in 1979.
