In the Studio: Prof. Mike Atkinson, Radiobiologist

Deutsche Welle (Mar. 21, 2011) — Prof. Atkinson from the Helmholtz Zentrum in München talks about the safety of nuclear energy and the impact of radiation on the human body.DW-TV: With us today, to tell us more about the situation, is the head of the Institute for Radiobiology at the Helmholtz Zentrum in München, Mike Atkinson. What does this disaster mean long-term for the nuclear industry? Mike Atkinson: It gives us an opportunity to reconsider very carefully our options in nuclear safety, alternative energy sources. Does the radiation from an event of this size as far as safety goes eventually spread all over the world? There is always a possibility that a nuclear reaction can spread radioactivity over large distances. In this particular situation there is less energy in the reactor building so that high level deposition of spread is extremely unlikely." So we’re talking about weather and wind direction I suppose? The wind is a major factor, the wind drives the radioactivity in different directions, depe
