The Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride Story17 minutes

An overview of Uranium, its isotopes, the need and history of diffusive separation, the handling of the Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride, and discussion of potential consequences.

Part of the "Hole" Story 8 minutes

Holes in the depleted Uranium Hexafluoride storage cylinders are investigated. It is shown that corrosion products cause the openings to be self-healing.

The Inside Story8 minutes

Probes are used to look at the inside of a Uranium Hexafluoride cylinder. The distribution and structure of the contents are discussed.

Metamorphosis12 minutes

The Uranium Hexafluoride phase diagram is investigated. An experimental setup is shown to look at the gas, liquid, and solid phases at various temperatures and pressures. This information is used to understand what happens inside a DUF6 storage cylinder.
