Nuclear Reactor Compartment Photograph

Nuclear Reactor Compartment Photograph

Image of a photograph depicting a dismantled nuclear submarine.  From the brookings.edu website we learn:

A defueled reactor compartment (right) is shown separated from the rest of the submarine. Once separated, special steel bulkheads are attached to both ends of the compartment and welded into place. After their radioactive fuel is removed, the compartments are classified as low level waste.
