Russian
nuclear
reactor
leaks gas
MOSCOW (AP) - A
Chernobyl-style nuclear power re-
actor near St. Petersburg leaked ra-
'dioactive gas yesterday, but
Russian atomic energy officials said
the small amount that escaped into
the atmosphere posed no threat to
the public.
Despite the official assurances,
some St. Petersburg residents took
precautions, including keeping chil-
dren indoors.
Swedish experts who visited the
Leningradskaya plant last year had
urged it be closed immediately be-
cause of safety concerns. U.S. offi-
cials said yesterday they remained
worried about the safety of all
Soviet-built nuclear plants.
Since the Chernobyl disaster
spewed radioactivity across Europe
in 1986, serious questions have
been raised about aging and poorly
designed reactors, poor mainte-
nance and operator errors at nuclear.
plants in the former Soviet Union.
Despite those concerns, Russia
must rely heavily on its nine nu-
clear power plants because of per-
sistent energy shortages. Three of
the plants - with 11 reactors -
share the same design as the
Chernobyl station.
Russian officials said filters ren-
dered the radioactive gases and io-
dine harmless yesterday as they es-
caped from the reactor building.
Soviet nuclear plants do not have

sealed structures designed to con-
tain leaks from reactors, which are
mandatory in the United States and
other nations.
More serious leaks occurred at
two other Soviet plants last year,

But the Finnish government said
only one of its monitoring stations
detected a "minute" rise in radiation
at high altitudes yesterday, while
others registered no increases.
Foreign experts agreed with

'There was no panic at the factory, but just to
be on the safe side we recommended that our
staff take three drops of iodine in a glass of
milk.'

Still, school officials ordered
kindergartens to keep children in-
doors today and advised parents to
put iodine in their children's milk.
The thyroid glands of young chil-
dren are particularly vulnerable to
radioactive iodine but can be made
less susceptible with doses of nor-
mal potassium iodine.
"Just to be on the safe side, I did
not allow the kids to be taken out-
side in the afternoon and gave each
half a pill of iodine," said Olga
Morozova, principal of Nursery
School No. 2 in St. Petersburg.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP)
- Atlantis roared into orbit with
seven astronauts yesterday on the
first shuttle mission devoted to the
environment. The expedition should
provide the most thorough look at
the Earth's atmosphere, including
the fragile ozone layer.
The crew quickly turned on the
scientific equipment in the cargo bay
and launched into more than a
week's worth of research. The in-
struments clicked on and began
sending back data.
Scientists on the ground were
"quite happy, eager and ready to go
to work," said Harry Craft, manager
of NASA's payload project office.
Atlantis rose from its seaside pad
at 8:14 a.m., a little late because of
low clouds over the emergency land-
ing site at Kennedy Space Center.
The twin solid rocket boosters re-
sembled a falling star as they peeled
away and dropped into the Atlantic.
"It doesn't look much better than
it did to me this morning," said
NASA Administrator Richard Truly.
"It was a beautiful launch and I was
delighted to be down here for it."
Dozens of Belgians gathered to
see Atlantis off with the first Belgian
to fly in space, Dirk Frimout. The
spectators included Princes Philippe
and Laurent, nephews of Belgium's
King Baudouin.
NASA's attempt to launch
Atlantis on Monday was halted be-
cause of hydrogen and oxygen leaks
that appeared in the engine com-
partment during fueling. Officials

determined the leaks posed no threat.
Astronaut David Leestma re-
ported the external fuel tank was
venting as it fell toward Earth.
Mission operations director Lee
Briscoe said that while unusual, it
caused no major concerns.
The eight-day flight, commanded
by Charles Bolden, is the first of 46
shuttle missions to be dedicated to
atmospheric research. All but one of
the 13 scientific instruments in the
cargo bay are studying Earth.
Scientists are especially inter-
ested in the ozone layer, which is
being eaten by manmade pollutants.
'it doesn't look much
better than it did to me
this morning. It was a
beautiful launch and L
was delighted to be
down here for it.'
- Richard Truly
NASA administrator
The stratospheric layer protects
Earth from dangerous ultraviolet
rays.
"It's surely on time that we do it
now," Frimout said in a pre-flight
interview.
Atlantis' voyage 184 miles above
Earth is part of NASA's Mission to
Planet Earth to study the environ-
ment from space. Researchers from
seven countries are participating.
The astronauts also plan to spend1
their few spare moments talking via
ham radio to school children around
the world.
