Will Masters received a phone call late this morning that would change his life forever and for the better, he thought. As a reporter on the Arkansas Tribune, he had been complacent with the mundane, the local stories that led his career nowhere but were everywhere in excess. This particular morning would change this particular aspect of his chosen field of work, he believed. A famous scientist, a recipient of the Nobel Prize, which mysteriously was never collected was on the other end of the line requesting an interview with him. With him! The man had disappeared years before without a trace and as suddenly, reappeared at Will’s desk on his phone. Will’s reaction was immediate. To the man's location he drove, a hundred miles away to a remote cabin where, unbeknownst to Will, an unfolding would take place and would send his life careening off a cliff spiraling downward into a place he didn't know existed, into a world that only existed in legend and myth. The mundane was over in his life and a spiritual awakening awaited him, luring him into a life that would never be the same again.

In 1943, as part of the Manhattan Project, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation was established with the mission to produce plutonium for nuclear weapons. During 45 years of operations, the Hanford Site produced about 67 metric tonnes of plutoniumâ€"approximately two-thirds of the nation's stockpile. Production processes generated radioactive and other hazardous wastes and resulted in airborne, surface, subsurface, and groundwater contamination. Presently, 177 underground tanks contain collectively about 210 million liters (about 56 million gallons) of waste. The chemically complex and diverse waste is difficult to manage and dispose of safely. Section 3134 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 calls for a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) to conduct an analysis of approaches for treating the portion of low-activity waste at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation intended for supplemental treatment. The third of four, this report provides an overall assessment of the FFRDC team's final draft report, dated April 5, 2019.
