        Ah, arclight, opera was invented to display the beauty and range of the human voice. I agree with the Bavarian performers though, I would not be willing to risk serious exposure to radiation.

          While not an Opera, I loved hearing and singing
          with Timothy Noble on the “Elijah” Oratorio by
          Felix Mendelssohn.
          What a Baritone!
          The guy Shook the big Methodist church, with pipe-organ,
          when he did his solos.
          A Great piece to musically dwell on, for these times.
          Elijah-Atlanta Symphony–Robert Shaw.
          Get one and play it.

    Future of Chernobyl health studies in doubt

    “How much radiation is 'unsafe' for humans? For those exposed to fallout from the disaster at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the question is all too real. But there is still no good answer: the accident has highlighted the enormous difficulties in estimating the long-term health risks of relatively low doses of radiation.

    A group of leading researchers in Europe had hoped that a fresh round of studies on people exposed to radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986 would finally begin to help fill this yawning science gap (see 'Lessons from the past'). But their proposal is now looking increasingly unlikely to proceed.”
