November 2015 research in Vaujours, FR, a nuclear contaminated area near Paris.

Fort de Vaujours was a formerly top secret key site for France’s nuclear arms program, where core components of the country’s first atom bombs were developed in the 1960s.

There were no full nuclear detonations at Vaujours, but parts of the fort were coated in radioactive dust. The site was closed in 1997 and, after efforts at decontamination, sealed to the public.
