Cleaning Up Radioactive Waste

Cleanup of the Goiania accident, which took place in late 1987. 249 people were exposed during the accident, which occurred when a junk yard dealer in the city of Goiania broke open an abandoned radiation therapy machine and removed a small highly radioactive cake of cesium chloride. Attracted to the bright blue color of the substance, children touched it, rubbed it on their bodies and in one case, ingested it. Several blocks of the city had to be razed due to contamination, and the rubble removed to a storage site several kilometers away. (Photo by Karen Kasmauski/Corbis via Getty Images)
