Brett Smith for redOrbit.com The first seafood caught off the Japanese coast of Fukushima since last year´s nuclear meltdown went on sale Monday – a sign the million-dollar fishing economy is on the mend. The first day´s offerings were limited to the only commercial sea creatures that have consistently tested negative for radioactive cesium: octopus and whelk, a type of marine snail. Japanese fishmongers are hoping sea bass and flounder soon follow, but are aware that...

A University of Alberta team has made an important breakthrough in the race to find a viable replacement for supply of technetium-99m, an important isotope produced by Canada's Chalk River reactor. Their research has proven that this important medical isotope, used in nuclear medicine imaging for about 250,000 Alberta patients each year, can be created in a device known as a cyclotron–and is as safe to use and provides as reliable an image as reactor-based isotopes. Their results are...
