Sage Ranch Park at Sunset . by Alice B. Clagett

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • Rocketdyne Meltdown in 1959
  • FOR MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

This is a video on Sage Ranch Park at sunset, with a little about the long-ago Santa Susana Field Laboratory nuclear reactor meltdown, also known as the Rocketdyne meltdown. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

[Shows fence lizard and big sandstone rocks at Sage Ranch.] Sage Ranch used to be a citrus and avocado farm. Look … Here is an old tree. Let’s see … where is that … oh, yes … avocado! [Zooms in to show avocado on the tree branch.]

[Shows California buckwheat, turned brown, and ravens flying, and dead chaparral bush on boulder, and view of mountains in the distance.]

Rocketdyne Meltdown in 1959

Off in the direction of the setting sun is a big place that changed hands in recent years. Previously it was a Rocketdyne facility; now it is owned by Boeing. It is a big, natural place where there was rocket testing about 50 years ago.

And one day … very hush hush … there was a nuclear reactor leak over that way. And the wind that was blowing that day, came from the direction of the Sun you see setting right now, towards me. And contaminated the air off towards the San Fernando Valley. [Pans left, towards the San Fernando Valley.] You cannot see the Valley, because this is a big top of a mountain here. But the San Fernando Valley is that way [points the camera south].

And the air blew strongly that day, and contaminated the air out towards the Valley. And nobody found out about it until 1979, when some students at UCLA found a paper that described that disaster, and made it public.

And so now, everybody knows. Looks like the plants and animals here are doing pretty well, though. It is a beautiful place. [Shows scenes, and birds at Sage Ranch, then pans north.] Off in the distance, there, is Simi Valley, a quiet little community. [Photos of old farm equipment left on the land when the citrus ranch was sold as Sage Ranch. Also, boulders, trees, and setting Sun.]
