Scientists find new source of radioactivity from Fukushima disaster
"Scientists have found a previously unsuspected place where radioactive material from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant disaster has accumulated-in sands and brackish groundwater beneath beaches up to 60 miles away. The sands took up and retained radioactive cesium originating from the disaster in 2011 and have been slowly releasing it back to the ocean."

What Does Radiation Poisoning Do to Your Body?
"There are a few kinds of radiation. Some is light or heat, but the kind that damages tissue is called ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation comes in high-energy waves like x-rays and gamma rays, or from nuclear material via particle decay. This kind of radiation can damage atoms, which can affect whole molecules (like DNA), and that can affect your cells, organs and whole body."

Giant Robotic Mech Suit Is Said to Help Clean Up Fukushima
"Bulgarov is well known in video game and film circles for his skill designing futuristic robots for games like World Of Warcraft and Diablo 3 and movies including Robocop (2014), Transformers 4 and others. But this was something different. Bulgarov, used to rendering heroes and villains using 3-D computer modeling software, was invited by a Korean robotics company to build something real."
