Radiation and Uranium are amazing and powerful.

Like many of natures most powerful creations, Uranium is dangerous and must be treated with respect. Never expose children, pets, or your bare hands to Uranium. If you should ever touch a Uranium sample, always wash your hands carefully.

Remember, distance, time, and shielding, and hand washing are your friends.

As always, don’t try this at home
