Scientists are baffled by a mysterious rise in radiation levels in parts of Europe including Germany, Italy, Austria, France, and Switzerland. The levels of Ruthenium 106 are not life threatening at this point, but scientists have thus far been unable to pinpoint their origin. Speculation is that the isotopes may be coming from Russia which may be an indication of another nuclear accident. The Russians originally attempted to cover up the major incident in Chernobyl in 1986 that caused the whole area in Ukraine to be evacuated and it is still uninhabitable. There are no indications that history is repeating itself, but there is still considerable concern in Europe.
