The Pacific Nuclear Research Facility was a laboratory in California that likely performed experiments in the use of plutonium for nuclear power. Two weeks prior to October 25, 1985, a case full of plutonium was stolen from their vault, although officials at the facility denied the fact. Even after a group of Libyan terrorists announced that they had stolen the missing radioactive material, the facility would rather blame the loss on a simple clerical error. However, plutonium was indeed stolen from the facility as it ended up in the hands of 'Doc' Emmett Brown who used it to fuel his DeLorean time machine on its first test.
