Caption

Radioactive handling. Technicians use levers to control robot arms (not seen here) in order to handle radioactive objects which are in sealed chambers behind the glass screens. The objects come from a nuclear reactor. This type of equipment is used to handle highly radioactive objects. The glass screens contain chemicals which block the radiation. The sealed chambers are held at a pressure less than that of the atmosphere to ensure that no radioactive material is released in the event of a breach. Normal materials can be converted into radioactive forms in a reactor when they absorb neutron particles emitted by the fuel.
