    When those noises on the geiger counter are close together, it's dangerous.
    When it's so high on the counter it sounds like constant static - It's very dangerous.
    When it's so high that it wraps around multiple times on the counter - You drop your counter, face the opposite direction, and run as fast as you can for as long as you can.
    ... You run - You don't TOUCH it ._.

    Please try to isolate some Radon from your Uranium/Radium ores by the very old method of puting the ore in a glass containing water and collecte the gás.... You probably will get a negligible amounth of gás, wich a big part will be Hellium but i think its woth trying... You could suck the gas with a syringe and test it with your Geiger counter.

    Ooh! Ooh! I have a collection like this, too, with some pieces of carnotite and autenite uranium ores, some ammonium diurante and uranium metal from United Nuclear, a piece of orange Fiestaware, some of those tritium lights, and even some trinitite from the first nuclear detonation in Jornada del Muerto, New Mexico. But I don't have it in a lead box -- I have it on my mineral shelf... I have an old Civil Defense Geiger counter that works well, but now after seeing your more modern one, I am getting one of those, too, for comparison. Radioactive stuff can be fun, and definitely good for freaking out some of my more timid guests. :)

      First of all I'm not the only fucking one who thinks like that and second I know about the that Mercury thing and third I just see too many of you fuckers to apologise if I apologised to everyone who deos that I would not have time to live a life

      And? you could respond politely ? like normal humans being, I don't know it was a joke, you seems insecure bro take it easy, not everyone know much about radiation and lots of peoples freak out about it for nothing.
      And the result of the mercury poisoning was that the levels of mercury in is blood was totally normal, so both case he's fine

      Alright first of I knew one of you fuckers would show up it's just a fucking joke. And he also dipped his whole arm in murcery and then had to go get tested for murcery poisoning so at least something I fucking said is right asshole everyone hate you kind people in any comment section

    I've been intrested in buying some tritium rods. I'm just wondering how harmful if harmful at all these hydrogen rods are if. They are so radioactive and I can't really tell with the geiger counter. Can you give me some advise on weather its gamma alpha or beta radiation being emitted.

    this gets me thinking. that mass of radioactive stuff in chernobyl, the elephants foot or whatever its called, say we could put that in a giant lead box (and live obviously) how thick would that box need to be to make it so someone standing next to it would be safe?

  • Luciano Guerra
    Luciano Guerra 2 months ago

    I guess it could be alright if you are given a clearance from the government to try and build something that uses radioactive material. Hopefully it will go ok. Hell I was surprised that someone would be allowed to sell high grade radioactive material on ebay. But then the government has stoke pilled used cadmium rod all over the United States. They are highly radioactive but I would have felt better if Cody had a tiny trailer outfitted with lead walls or a crate not a card board box holding radioactive material it not something to be taken lightly. Thank Cody for the heads up. I know you bought materials that or friends sent you radioactive material most likely because they did not know what to do with it. I hope people are being careful with that stuff, it can cause a number of damage to the human body cancer for one. Radiation burn

    • Jarynn
      Jarynn 3 months 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.

    • Docteur Freaz
      Docteur Freaz Month ago

      Yes on very long exposure like after years and years but it's completly safe to handle it times to times, like I said to someone else in the comments : Just for your info, millisievert (mSv) and microsievert (μSv) which are 1/1000 and 1/1000000 of a sievert respectively. His geiger counter picked at something like 200µSv on the Uranium ore which is "very" low, for exemple background radiation is around 2mSv/year, astronauts on the ISS take about 150mSv/year and dangerous amount of rad that can cause sickness is about 1,000mSv or 1 Sievert. So he's fine no worry

  • Peter Schmidt
    Peter Schmidt 3 months ago

    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.
