According to Health Canada, an estimated 3,000 Canadians die each year from lung cancer induced by radon exposure. A Carleton team is trying to change that.
Graduate engineering Student Alex Ross first heard of radon when he was looking for a focus for his fourth-year engineering project.
Radon is an invisible, odourless and tasteless radioactive gas found naturally in the earth. Ubiquitous in nature, radon is produced in uranium’s decay chain, and is able to move freely through soil and water.November 17, 2015
