Caption

Fuel rod storage at a nuclear power station. View of a fuel rod pool, where fuel rods are stored prior to use in a nuclear reactor. The fuel rods are kept under many metres of water. The water absorbs any radioactivity from the fuel. In this picture, a fuel rod (long black object) is being removed. This photograph was taken during the 'charging' period of the Flamanville pressurised water reactor in France.
