AIEEE! Radiation!

I think a lot of the fear of radiation dates back to the Hanford Tests during the cold war.

In Washington State they released huge amounts of radioactive iodine in an effort to find Russian nuclear weapon plants. People living nearby got very heavy doses.

But did it work? Did they find any Russian nuclear weapon plants in Washington State?

Not a one. Apparently the whole test was a bust.
