ORAU: Then & Now

Video: What is ORAU?

ORAU has been quietly at work since 1946. I’ve lived minutes from Oak Ridge for most of my life, and until I came to work here, I didn’t know much about what the company does. So, I wanted to help put together a video to explain it to others. Watch this video to learn how ORAU started with the Manhattan Project during World War II and is still supporting the nation’s top priorities today.
