Trashing History

Episode 14 | 11m

Two multi-ton metal relics (a carbon dating machine and full body scanner) from the Cold War, abandoned in the gutted labs that once housed the Atomic Energy Commission in New York City, are heading to the scrap yard. Can these relics be saved for posterity by the summer intern and archivist who discovered them? Trashing History is a look at how much history can and should be saved.
