Homer Simpson Worked on the Manhattan Project, It Seems

First batch of plutonium was sealed in a safe and then thrown in a dump.

Well, now we know where Springfield really is! :wink:

This doesn’t surprise me. I’m not sure if it’s because they didn’t know, or didn’t care. Fortunately, cleanup efforts are underway. It’s not cheap. A lot of pits are mostly undocumented, so assay in place must be done before removal.
