Mini Nuclear Reactor at U.S. Government Lab Shut Down After Radiation Leak

A small-scale nuclear reactor at a U.S. government neutron research facility was shut down last week after it began to spew elevated amounts of ionising radiation. No employees received dangerous doses of radiation, according to officials, who are now devising a plan to determine the cause of the leak.
