Is this statement on the Der Spiegel Atomic Desert site accurate?  If it is,
why two meter thick steel plates and how much of an area do they cover.




The Kazakh government had hoped to make the site available for agricultural
use once again. But some areas are still so contaminated with plutonium that
they have to be covered with huge, two-meter thick steel plates to contain
the radiation.
