|B Reactor, the world's
first industrial-scale nuclear reactor, was built during World War II as part of the
top-secret Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb.
One of three plutonium production reactors built in total secrecy at Hanford during World War II, B Reactor produced plutonium for the Trinity test at Alamagordo, New Mexico, on July 16, 1945, and for the atomic bomb exploded on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945.
