    Why is it that we compare the radiation in milk to what I would get in an airplane. The last I knew Iodine-131 does not come from the sun.

    I can hardly understand that the Japanese cabinet refused to evacuate 100 villagers of Iitate, one of the highly contaminated areas, to a safer place, almost ignoring IAEA advice. What's the stupid reason behind that stupid decision? Tokyo

    With all the "talk" about the crisis in Japan, I've never seen or heard much info about the types of nuclear material being used in the reactors. One type of material found in nuclear reactors is Plutonium-239, which has a half life of 24,000 years. Doesn't that (possibly) give any escaped Plutonium-239 material several millenia to find it's way to American shores? GS
