Local Gifted Teen Detects Japanese Radiation in Reno

A young scholar at a Reno school for gifted middle and high school students has detected tiny amounts of radiation from Japan’s damaged nuclear plant in Reno’s air, snow and rain.

(KOLOTV)   A young scholar at a Reno school for gifted
middle and high school students has detected tiny amounts of
radiation from Japan’s damaged nuclear plant in Reno’s air, snow
and rain.

Sixteen-year-old Taylor Wilson made the discovery with equipment he uses to measure radioactivity in his own class projects at the Davidson Academy on the University of Nevada, Reno campus.

Wilson, who became the youngest person to produce nuclear fusion
two years ago, says a high-purity germanium spectrometer detected
minuscule amounts of the radioactive isotopes iodine-131 and
cesium-137 and cesium-134.

While the isotopes are not usually detected in Nevada, Wilson stresses the readings were far below levels that could pose any
health risks.

Tiny amounts of the isotopes also have been detected in Las
Vegas.
