Are we doing anything with old nuclear test sites?

    What happens to old test sites really depends on the government. For example, there was a British test site in Australia called Maralinga where the government commissioned a clean-up. The top soil was removed and pits were cleaned of their debris using a method called in-situ vitrification, where the top layer of dirt was melted together then covered with clean soil. Old test sites are usually just left as they are, with no people allowed to go inside, or occasionally they’ll be cleaned up like Maralinga was.
