Japan's Missing Plutonium: How dangerous material falls through the cracks

Lasrick (2629253) writes | about 3 months ago


Lasrick (2629253) writes "Japan's missing plutonium has been found, but the larger point of this article remains: 'Most people would agree that keeping track of dangerous material is generally a good idea. So it may come as a surprise to some that the arrangements that are supposed to account for weapon-grade fissile materials—plutonium and highly enriched uranium—are sketchy at best. The most recent example involves several hundreds kilograms of plutonium that appear to have fallen through the cracks in various reporting arrangements.'"

The material was never "missing", just listed in the wrong column on a spreadsheet some guy was looking at.
