Sunflowers will clean up radiation leaked from power plant.

Mike’s journey has come to an end but we will continue to post interesting stories. Check in often to see what’s new with Japan, California, and our Pacific connection.

Today I learned about a project which will help develop cultural unity and remove radiation leaked from the Fukushima nuclear reactor. How? By planting fields of sunflowers in the reactors fallout zone.

Beauty and function meet to clean up the fallout.

The goal is a landscape so yellow that “it will surprise NASA,” says project manager Shinji Handa.  For more information on this project visit the mother nature network and enjoy the full article.
