The Infowars crew investigates a nuclear
secret buried in Austin, Texas.
A nuclear reactor started in the 60s is
hidden beneath the monolith of the LBJ Library on the University of
Texas campus, even as the nearby J.J. Pickle Research Center
admittedly runs two research reactors.
Meanwhile, nuclear waste is said to be
dumped and sealed in limestone caves located in what was once the
outskirts of Austin, according to an inside source.
nuclear reactor safe despite skepticism, says university professor
UT’s Nuclear History:
The University operates a 1.1
megawatt nuclear reactor at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus. The
University’s first reactor went critical, at Taylor Hall on the
main campus, in August 1963 at 10kW using fuel loaned from the
This reactor was upgraded to 250 kW
in 1968. In the late 1980s, the University began work on the
reactor for the Nuclear Engineering Teaching Lab at the Pickle
Campus. This reactor went critical in 1992, despite local news
reports on its safety.

History - A nuclear option at the
University of Texas at Austin has been in existence for over
forty years. The earliest known course was Nuclear Reactor
Operation and Maintenance and was first offered in 1957.
Nuclear Engineering became an option
in Engineering Science in 1960 and in Mechanical Engineering in
1970, where it is currently administered. In August 1963, the
TRIGA nuclear reactor went critical at 10kW using fuel loaned
from the U.S. Government.
In 1968, the power was upgraded to
250 kW and then upgraded again in 1992 to 1100 kW at a different

Texas A&M University has its own reactors:
Texas A&M Nuclear Science Center -
There are two nuclear research reactors that serve the Texas A&M
University Nuclear Science Center. The older of the two is the
AGN-201M model, a low-power teaching reactor.
The newer reactor,
the TRIGA Mark I, is focused strongly towards research.
