Background: Athenian are very much ??? that a ??? Athens airport port ??? ??? the Swiss Air DC-8 plane crash last Sunday night. And this, for the plane carried a certain quantity of plutonium 238, besides the two-million-dollar worth diamonds. The Nuclear Research Center's experts were measuring the radioactivity of the area every day -- as they did today -- to ascertain whether any plutonium contamination in the area of the accidents exists. In an exclusive statement, Prof. Anthony Hadjiantoniou, director of Health-Physics Dept. of the Greek Atomic Energy Commission, explains the difference between Plutonium 238 which is for industrial purposes from Plutonium 239 which is sued for Nuclear weapons. He also says that no contamination whatsoever was reported by the Nuclear Research Center's experts following constant measurements.
