    How heavy is that box anyway?

  • Victor Pérez Villar

    Half of hour to do this video at mean rate of 100 mSv/h you received a big amount of radioactive dose. Be careful

    Casually mentions that he's going to build a fusion reactor.
    US power sockets are funny, though. They look like a (pardon the pun) shocked face.

    Did you just contaminate that countertop?

    • Jarynn
      Jarynn 15 days ago

      He left everything in the containers. Radiation itself cant accumulate. Radiation leaks are dangerous because of material escaping containment and creating radiation where it isnt supposed to. So no, the countertop is fine.

    Well, at least now you know your Geiger counter stores the value in sixteen bits :v

  • Peter Schmidt

    If you take a normal CMOS-based webcam (so basically any cheap one) and remove all the lenses you should be able to detect alpha, beta, and gamma particles. The lens can often block the alpha and beta particles.
    Since the events are very fast, you want to set the exposure to be pretty short, so the camera gets a better frame rate. Not all cameras let you change this, though.

    The green rock from your grandpas collection is a piece of the glassy layer above the first nuclear test site. It’s got that classic radioactive green color to it. Look it up, because tbh I don’t know much about it.

    Cody, this is genuinely worrying! Your basically sacrificing your life for this! Radiation is no joke! You may not have been around it for long, but you will probably get lasting effects! Cancers for certain I would expect!!

    • logitech4873
      logitech4873 27 days ago

      I recommend you to read up on how much radiation the human body can handle.
      Cody isn't putting himself in any considerable danger here, don't worry about it.

    Be cautious about using lead shielding with beta emitters. When a beta particle interacts with a dense metal such as lead it can create X-rays. This could be why at the beginning you were getting such a high reading when measuring on the top of the lead.

  • Dani Paunov

    I feel like your Geiger Counter is using an unsigned 16 bit variable to track the CPM and so it overflows back to 0 once it reaches 65536. Could be wrong

    Like how much radiation where you exposed to with all of the video; and how much time could you be exposed to the uranium before you could start feeling sick or even get cancer or something? Like you're videos 👍🏻👍🏻

      Doing some wild approximations, if he held all these rocks tight to his body for an entire hour, he could receive in the order of 3-4 sieverts worth of damage - which is potentially lethal.
      1 - He used protective gloves
      2 - The materials were far away from his body
      3 - The materials were mostly in the box
      4 - He didn't stand around for an hour
      These steps reduce the damage received by A LOT. Probably in the order of tens of millisieverts instead.

    i am interested in doing mutation breeding in plants, corn specificaley, but a couple of other plants too.
    i will eventualey try using a little x-ray tube in a cement box, but in the mean time i am wondering if there are any other ways of causeing radiation or chemical mutation in plants without to much risk to my self?
    is there anything "over the counter" so to speak that might do the trick?
    my chemistry knoledge is pretty limited unfortunatley, so i probabley can't dafley pull off anything to advanced...
    any sugestions would be apreciated. thanks.
    love the chanell.

    I think I may have become radiated some from watching this vid. The big chunk, then one consisting of 50% uranium and making your geiger counter start over counting because the Measurement surpassed the amount it was able to tell. Twice. That chunk, it polarized my glasses and made my fillings screech. Please don't handle that thing in your house, man.
