A documentary about the research cruise to the Norwegian sea

Researcher Hans-Christian Teien and PhD student Shane Sheibener took part in a research cruise to document leakage from the wreck of the sunken submarine "Komsomolets" in the beginning of July. Radioactive caesium has been detected, but there is no danger to humans or the environment.

TV 2 has followed the researchers on the cruise and have now made documentary about it, which will be aired at TV2 Sumo and news channel this weekend.
