 The United States has lost one of its nuclear materials: a dirty bomb.


The United States University of Idaho and the United States Department of Energy Co operated a nuclear project with 14 small doses of weapons grade plutonium materials. However, in October last year, the school reported to the government that only 13 of these nuclear materials had processed records and one was missing. The school looked everywhere and could not find its whereabouts. The plutonium material weighs about 1 grams per portion. The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission said that the plutonium lost is not enough to produce nuclear weapons, but it can create dirty bombs and cause radioactive pollution. On the 4 day of this month, the school was fined for $8500.
