Nerding Out with General Electric
General Electric has always been a leader in technology, industry, and manufacturing. However, they have brought something new to the traditional idea of innovation, with the growing amounts of manufacturing technology. Along with the emerging effort of bringing technology, manufacturing, and industrial jobs to younger generations.
One way GE has chosen to do so is by bringing in the old cast from the hit Discovery Channel show Myth Busters! Bringing exciting innovation in manufacturing to the eye of the public and appealing to a pop-culture fan with the fans of the Myth Busters crew.
General Electrics video series is an excellent way to bring a younger generation into the science and technology world and even into manufacturing and industry.
Last week in the state of Washington a major emergency forced the Hanford nuclear site, Plutonium Uranium Extraction Facility (PUREX), 200 miles outside of Seattle had a major scare. Shortly before 8:30 am, an underground tunnel filled with rail cars and nuclear waste collapsed. The collapse covered about 400 square feet. Thankfully no one was inside of the tunnel when it collapsed, but nearby crew members were evacuated and sent home early. Cleanup for this is estimated to cost more than $107 billion and will take until 2060.
Thankfully no one was hurt in this event, but the cost for clean up alone will destroy the state of Washington and our country as a whole.
