Is it weapons grade plutonium? I guess not, just another silly racist thread from BW
A ship carrying up to 331 kg of weapons-grade plutonium has left the port in Ibaraki Prefecture in Japan for the US, where the material will be downgraded. The amount of plutonium carried by the vessel is enough to produce up to 50 nuclear bombs.
The nuclear material is being carried by an armed British vessel, operated by Pacific Nuclear Transport, and its exact route has been kept secret for security reasons. The purity of plutonium is so high that it could be easily used to make advanced nuclear weapons. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/ship-ca ... es-japan-us-1550900
