Reactorsaurus to Clean Up Dounreay PFR


Have a nuclear power station problem? Call for Reactorsaurus, an oversized 75 ton waldo that is going to strip the 1950s built Dounreay defunct reactor by remote control. It has two robotic arms with pincers and "roving photographic eyes." The seabed near the PFR (Prototype Fast Reactor) will also be cleaned up as radioactive particles were found in it.
