Footprints in an abandoned nuclear reactor

Does this photo really show footprints in an abandoned nuclear reactor?


Photo credit: Aurelie Curie on Flickr.

This photo was taken in 2011 by Aurelie Curie. Location: Satsop nuclear plant, Elma, WA, USA.

The Satsop nuclear plant is abandoned in a sense that it was never finished. It was cancelled. Even if the plant was related to nuclear, it was never active so it is quite safe from the perspective of radiation. Furthermore, this photo was not taken in an (unfinished) nuclear reactor.

The photographer later found out who made the footsteps. A music video called “Mechanism” by Endless Summer was filmed in the same location. You can check out the video on Youtube.

More spooky details: Transformers: Age of Extinction and a thriller called Depth were both filmed at this plant.
