Our host Michelle was knowledgeable and I'll always remember the one question I asked and I loved her answer.

I asked if there are any dark secrets that Hanford is hiding and she replied that with today's technology, those other nations in the world can see exactly what's going on in Hanford from space.

It's a secure facility no doubt but Hanford being as secretive as it was in World War II has become a thing of the past.
