A Kimba couple who have volunteered part of their property for a National Radioactive Waste Management Facility got to see first hand how a nuclear facility works when they visited the Lucas Heights facility last week.

Brett and Michelle Rayner visited the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) in Sydney’s Lucas Heights to see how nuclear waste is processed and stored.
