    The Windscale fire of 10 October was the worst nuclear accident in Great Britain's history, ranked in severity at level 5 out of a possible 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The fire took place in Unit 1 of the two-pile Windscale facility on the northwest coast of England in Cumberland (now Sellafield, Cumbria).The two graphite-moderated reactors, referred to at the time as Coordinates: 54°25′27″N 3°29′54″W / . Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is one of the United States Department of Energy national laboratories, managed by the Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of main campus of the laboratory is in Richland, Washington.. Originally named the Pacific Northwest Laboratory, PNNL was established in when research and development at the Hanford Site was separated from other Budget: US$ million (FY18). The Hanford Site occupies square miles (1, km 2)—roughly equivalent to half of the total area of Rhode Island—within Benton County, Washington. This land is closed to the general public. It is a desert environment receiving under 10 inches of annual precipitation, covered mostly by shrub-steppe vegetation. The Columbia River flows along the site for approximately 50 miles (80 km.
