Subject: [HASTRO-L] Historic Westinghouse Van de Graaff 'Atom Smasher' At Risk
The old Westinghouse atom smasher has stood at the edge of Forest Hills since 1937. It's five stories tall, looks a bit like a silver light bulb with a big W on two sides.
This thing hasn't smashed an atom since 1958, but a Washington developer says he just paid CBS six figures for it and the 11 surrounding acres, the heart of it fenced off with barbed wire. Gary Silversmith, who'd like to see apartments at the site, hasn't any particular use for the nation's first Van de Graaff nuclear generator. So, gentle reader, do you know anyone who does?
