Holy crapoli, Batman! I smell a new super-villian storyline!
There is probably some plastic surgeon already trying to find a way to market this as better than botox.
Seriously though, what an amazing story. That poor fella.....
From what we know about radiation, about 500 to 600 rads is enough to kill a person (though we don’t know of anyone else who has been exposed to radiation in the form of a proton beam moving at about the speed of sound). The left side of his face swollen beyond recognition, Bugorski was taken to a clinic in Moscow so that doctors could observe his death over the following two to three weeks.
Speed of sound doesn't sound fast at all. Maybe a misprint?
I noticed that, too, rog'. Do they mean speed of light? But that seems awfully fast.
