Plum Brook Reactor Facility Decommissioning Update Scheduled
The Seventh Annual Community Information Session on the decommissioning of the closed Reactor Facility at NASA Glenn Research Center's Plum Brook Station will take place on Tuesday, October 18, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Cedar Point Center on the BGSU Firelands campus at One University Drive in Huron.

The Information Session will provide an informal atmosphere in which to learn about the progress made on the decommissioning over the last year. Members of NASA's Decommissioning Team and the project's Community Workgroup will be on hand to meet community members and answer their questions. Printed information including fact sheets and the latest edition of the Decommissioning Newsletter will be available.

In addition to a series of displays about the decommissioning, there will be information about the other research facilities at Plum Brook and the exciting research that takes place in them.

An important part of NASA's mission is the focus on education. The Information Session presents an excellent educational opportunity for students of all ages and their parents. For those interested in history, there will be limited-seat viewing of segments of the documentary video "Of Ashes and Atoms" and a display of artifacts and photographs shown in the documentary.

The quarterly meeting of the Community Workgroup for the decommissioning of the closed Reactor Facility will precede the Information Session at 5:30 p.m. at the same location. The Workgroup meetings provide NASA a vehicle for disseminating information on the decommissioning process to the members of the Workgroup and the community. The Workgroup consists of Erie County health and public safety professionals and representatives from the educational, environmental and minority communities. The public is welcome to attend this meeting.

Media representatives are welcome at both the Community Workgroup Meeting and the Information Session.

Further information about the Decommissioning Project is available via the Decommissioning Information Line at 1-800-260-3838 or the Decommissioning Website at
