Dimona nuclear reactor

Nuclear bomb factory in Negev Desert near Dimona (Israeli secret nuclear complex) described as "chocolate" or "textiles" factory. The domed structure glimmering on the sun to the right is the reactor built in 1958 by France, or Machon (block) No. 1. Cooling towers are clearly visible to the left. Palms and gardens are planted to obscure the facility from the road. The picture was taken from Road 25 at around 7:00 a.m. The Middle East, April 26, 2000
