About this Item

Format is approximately 8.5 inches by 11 inches. 28 pages plus covers. Illustrations (many in color). This was intended to be a quarterly publication by BWXT Y-12, LLC, the managing and operating contractor of the Y-12 National Security Complex. The Y-12 National Security Complex is a United States Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration facility located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. It was built as part of the Manhattan Project for the purpose of enriching uranium for the first atomic bombs. It is considered the birthplace of the fissile material used in the atomic bomb. In the years after World War II, it has been operated as a manufacturing facility for nuclear weapons components and related defense purposes. Y-12 is the World War II code name for the electromagnetic isotope separation plant producing enriched uranium at the Clinton Engineer Works in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, as part of the Manhattan Project. Construction began in February 1943 under the management of Stone and Webster. The Y-12 facility began operating in November 1943, separating uranium-235 from natural uranium, which is 99.3% uranium-238, by using calutrons to perform electromagnetic isotope separation. Y-12 separated the uranium-235 for Little Boy, the nuclear weapon that was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. The 2000s were a time of renewed spirit, revitalization and modernization. First new production building in 30 years was completed, new enriched uranium storage building was constructed as the most secure location in the world and two new office buildings put a brand new face on Y-12.
