The main characters featured in this episode are:
Duke Nukem goes on a rampage in Korea where he tries to absorb as much atomic cesium as he can. Unfortunately, two street kids find the cesium piece, mistaking it for a "magic star", and wind up contaminating the city with radiation. The Planeteers are on a race against the clock and Nukem to find the cesium and decontaminate the city before the radiation poisoning becomes fatal.
Significant Moments and Facts
This episode is a loose retelling of the Goiânia accident (albeit with a happy ending), a real-life incident that took place in Brazil in 1987, where four people died of radiation exposure after a loose tablet of Cesium-137 was stolen from a broken x-ray machine and ended up in a private residence, where people played with the glowing material, unaware of its' danger.
