Russians Putting the Sexy Back in Nuclear Science

What could be hotter than a beauty contest featuring the daughters of the scientists who brought the world Chernobyl?

It’s the Miss Atom Beauty Contest:

The competition is open only to women who work in the nuclear world and, as the Web site describes, “Miss Atom is the first and only industry-wide, Web-based project for nuclear belles.”

Here’s the contest’s web page. It’s written in Russian, but I don’t think that really matters. Nuclear science is a universal language.
