Radioactive carbon from Cold War nuclear tests has been found deep in the ocean

Radioactive carbon from Cold War nuclear tests has been found deep in the ocean Decades after the nuclear bomb tests of the Cold War, traces of radioactive carbon have been found in the deepest parts of the ocean. Crustaceans found in the deepest trenches of the Pacific Ocean showed high levels of radioactive carbon in their muscle tissues, according to a study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters in April. The "bomb carbon" found its way into their molecules from nuclear tests performed in the 1950s and '60s -- and it's been found miles down into the ocean where these creatures live.

Chilean authorities say six Brazilian tourists died of carbon monoxide poisoning while staying in an old apartment in central Santiago. Authorities said Wednesday that police had been alerted by the Brazilian Embassy, which was called by one of the victims when she became ill.
