— Dangerous radioactive hot particles span the globe

Citizen scientists are uncovering risks that governments would rather cover up

When reactors exploded and melted down at the Fukushima nuclear power complex in March 2011, they launched radioactivity from their ruined cores into the unprotected environment.  Some of this toxic radioactivity was in the form of hot particles (radioactive microparticles) that congealed and became airborne by attaching to dusts and traveling great distances.

However, the Fukushima disaster is only the most recent example of atomic power and nuclear weapons sites creating and spreading these microparticles. Prior occurrences include various U.S. weapons sites and the ruined Chernobyl reactor. While government and industry cover up this hazard, community volunteer citizen science efforts – collaborations between scientists and community volunteers – are tracking the problem to raise awareness of its tremendous danger in Japan and across the globe.

After the Fukushima nuclear disaster began, one highly radioactive specimen, a particle small enough to inhale or ingest, was found in a private home where it should not have been, hundreds of miles from its source, in a vacuum cleaner bag containing simple house dust.

Shut down nuclear reactors now!

Imagine this is a hot man made radiation particle inside of your body, or inside the body of a child. Those radiation machine gun bullets are invisible, but with the cloud chamber above, you can actually ‘see’ the radiation as it fires out of the hot radioactive material. This is also what happens INSIDE your body, and your children’s bodies.
