This capsule is tiny – but dangerous.

It’s like losing a needle in a haystack: somewhere along a long desert road in Western Australia, a tiny radioactive capsule has disappeared. It was part of a radiation meter in a mining machine. The capsule apparently fell off a truck during transport from a mine north of the mining town of Newman to a depot near the metropolis of Perth.

This apparently happened in the second week of January. However, according to information from TV broadcaster ABC, their absence was only noticed on January 25 when the truck was unloaded. It is assumed that strong vibrations from bumpy roads loosened a fastening screw, which allowed the capsule to fall out.
