Jiuquan Atomic Energy Complex

Monday, 8th May 2006 by

Jiuquan Atomic Energy Complex is purportedly used for the manufacture of China's Nuclear weapons. The plant is centred in a small patch of high-resolution satellite photography, but I'm sure those readers who understand Nuclear power plants can tell all sorts from the various buildings and reactors.

I'm sadly not one of those people, but it does seem to me that there's Hanzi writing in these unused cooling towers? I suppose it could be a safety warning if you happen to be in the tower or maybe it's a message to the US, who have been monitoring the area via satellite since 1962.

More info and historical satellite photos on GlobalSecurity.org.
