Radiation calibration facility at ISU now serving the whole state

Everyone knows that too much exposure to radiation can be dangerous. But since radiation is colorless and odorless, you need a radiation meter to actually detect it. Those radiation meters are highly specialized instruments that need to be calibrated at least once a year to ensure they work properly. That's where the radiation calibration facility at Iowa State comes in. Recently, the state of Iowa closed their radiation calibration facility, leading to Iowa State's facility calibrating many of the radiation meters in Iowa and some surrounding states. It's important work that can help keep first responders safe.
