It produced plutonium for nearly half a century in Richland, Washington. The time now is clean up, but the culture of the atom is still strong. So strong that even the logo at Richland High School (home of the bombers), is represented with the famous atomic mushroom.

Proud of being the place in the world where was born the atomic bomb which burst in Japan, Richland bears since the 1940s the Hanford complex that produced the bomb "Fat Man" dropped on Nagasaki August 9, 1945. Hanford is the birthplace of nuclear weapons in the U.S. It is also the site in the world most contaminated by radioactive isotopes from Chernobyl.

Today, however, the nuclear Richland is mostly synonymous of decontamination. In 1989 was voted a cleaning giant $ 30 billion, one of the largest in the world, managed by the U.S. Department of Energy. Twenty years later, work is well advanced on the 1500 square kilometres of the site, but there are still things to do for several years, even decades.

All about Richland story is for becoming awareness about what is supposedly happening on IRAN and its production of plutonium. If “the cleverest” state of the world wasn’t able to stop their angry against their “enemies”, how a state which doesn’t respect elementary aspects on the lives of their own citizens can manage similar strength that an atomic bomb has?

Nowadays Richland residents are well aware about what it has represented on their lives, some of which are involved now in educating their neighbours on a new citizen regard about all this, thing that contrasts with the "proud atomic" traditional.
