Sixty years ago today, on 13 November 1959 at 8 minutes to 11 in the morning, the Dounreay Fast Reactor (DFR) achieved criticality for the first time. The iconic reactor played a critical part in the UK's fast reactor research and development for nearly 20 years.

Congratulations to Alex who was a finalist in the New Employee category of the annual Babcock Group Health and Safety Excellence Awards. Alex was one of the winners in Dounreay's own Awards last year.
