In 1995, in a park near the kremlin,Russian police uncovered a container of deadly radioactive caesium.The event was hushed up by the authorites. Now Horizon asks how easy would it be for terorists to build a 'dirty bomb' (a conventional device packed with low grade radioactive material), and what would be the effect of such a wepon on central London and America

Horizon

Did anyone manage to catch up on this by any chance?

I didn't see that one, hopefully it'll be repeated. Thanks Seven.

Anyone remember in some really poor African country how scavengers opened an x-ray machine in an abandoned clinic and took out about a pound of cesium? The ignorance about the stuff, the fact it glowed prettily in the dark, and the delayed affects of the radiation allowed it to be distributed quite widely and terribly sicken many people before authorities stepped in. Simply throwing a bag of cesium powder on to the metro tracks in the subway would paralyze a modern city's transportation system and could result in many casualties. And harmful radioactive materials are not extremely hard to acquire.

Thatís what I find scary that you can find this stuff almost anywhere and easily use this for a dirty bomb might not have a big effect but its enough to-do damage. If you read more of the links it covers a great deal about it i found it intresting,
