Caption: 'Fisheye' view of the interior of the containment building of the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) nuclear reactor. FFTF is a research reactor used to test new nuclear fuels and structural components for the nuclear industry. Across the centre of the image is the operating deck, with the main refuelling equipment above (orange). Below the deck is the Interim Examination and Maintainance (IEM) cell. In this, irradiated fuel and test assemblies may be dismantled and studied by remote control. In normal use, the IEM is sealed to contain an inert nitrogen atmosphere for safety reasons.
