Fungi found in Chernobyl feeds on radioactive material, report says

Scientists have discovered a strand of fungi in the Chernobyl nuclear power plant that feeds on radioactive material. While the fungi was first found at Chernobyl in 1991, scientists have just recently found that its properties could help protect people from radiation. The dark colored fungi reportedly has a high amount of melanin which helps absorb radiation and convert it into a chemical energy.

No, this is incorrect. It cannot eat radiation as radiation is the movement of subatomical particles through space. It might eat radioactive material, though.

These days ever so often, we get news of many finds. Yet, they just dwindle away with the winds of nature or manly ones.

Interesting. Could we use it to dispose of nuclear waste. Nature always seems to have the solutions to our problems, we just haven't discovered the applications yet.
