  1. Hmmm… The cool map is measuring bq/m^3, and the max for the UK looks like around 3×10^-7bq/m^3 at the end of the animation. There’s no easy way to convert to a unit of absorbed dose, but if I had to guess, I’d say you probably get more additional radiation from flying to Chamonix than you’d get from Fukushima in a month. :alien:

    http://xkcd.com/radiation/ puts it into perspective.

  2. Yes we are (all going to die) but my guess is that we, in Britain, are more at risk from a tsunami than radioactiveness from Japan. That said, we are trying to persuade the bosses at work to quarantine any spares coming in from over until they have been checked for Geigers 💡 😯
