A CBS News 60 Minutes investigation to find the truth about how a six-year - old boy was turned into a nuclear guinea pig on behalf of the U.S. government and exposed to a lethal dose of radiation. The purpose of the radiation, his mother was told, was to cure her son's leukemia. The real reason we learned was to gauge the level of radiation a human being could stand for the Department of Defense and the manned space program.
