Until 2006, Kodak had a nuclear reactor, weapons-grade uranium, in its basement: "File this one under “strange, but true — and completely terrifying”: Until 2006, beleaguered imaging company Kodak had a fully functioning nuclear reactor, packed with weapons-grade uranium, in the basement of one of its buildings near Rochester, New York. And according to the Democrat and Chronicle (a local Rochester newspaper), almost nobody in the community knew about it — until now."

By 2006, however, Kodak apparently figured that it no longer needed its own nuclear reactor, and got the U.S. Federal government to help safely transport the uranium to a secure storage facility in South Carolina.
But we never thought we would be able to associate the phrases “nuclear reactor” and “enriched uranium” with the once-great photography giant — until recently that is. That’s because a few months ago a former Kodak employee let slip to the Democrat and Chronicle the existance of a little known, and never publicized, nuclear reactor hidden in the bowels of Kodak city for the last 30 years.
