Mutants In The News — "You're Next!!! YOU'RE NEXT!!!" Edition

Big ups to one of the most infectiously enthusiastic bloggers I read, Needles, for finding this article about web-like filaments growing on nuclear waste.  I can't imagine anyone more qualified to blog about atomic thread and radioactive fibers.

Here's my favorite quotes from the piece:

“The growth, which resembles a spider web, has yet to be characterized, but may be biological in nature...."


“But whatever it is, (it) doesn’t appear to be causing any damage...."

I think we all know how this one progresses....
