Marco Kaltofan at Worcester Polytechnic Institute has issued more information about some unusual findings from a home vacuum cleaner bag they tested. The vacuum bag came from a home in Nagoya Japan, 460 km south and west of Fukushima Daiichi. We reported earlier on their discovery that something was very “off” with this sample sent in for examination.
More details have been released as the additional testing was completed and found that:
- The single radioactive particle was identified as being a “hot particle” from fuel from Fukushima Daiichi.
- The particle was small enough someone could have breathed it into their lungs.
- This was found far away from the disaster site showing materials traveled long distances
