Work Goes On

In the picture above, David Rawling, nuclear chemist, manipulates mechanical hands inside one of the "caves" near the base of the U-M's Ford Nuclear Reactor to put radioactive material into jar. Protected by the three-foot thick windows of the cave, he is able to handle by remote mechanical means materials which otherwise would be too dangerous to manipulate. The work he is doing involves making up radioactive bromine for General Motors Corp. to use in measuring oild consumption in car motors.
