WIPP investigators develop camera for closer look

WIPP underground

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – Investigators still trying to figure out the cause of the radiation leak at WIPP, want to get a better a look inside the area where it happened.

They’re now developing an extender device that will let video cameras see what no cameras have seen so far.

The leak occurred in an underground area called Panel Seven.

The investigative team has now made a mock up of it to test what method of looking deep inside might work best.
