New Web Site is Totally Radioactive

By EPA

From seeing a stadium laser light show to receiving an x-ray, radiation is part of our lives. That's why EPA is launching RadTown USA, a new Web site that uses an animated town to provide basic information on radiation in the environment. RadTown USA is a virtual community showing the wide variety of radiation sources commonly encountered in everyday life. The RadTown site features houses, a school, stadium, construction site, flying plane, moving train and much more to highlight and explain the many common sources of radiation.
