Do you gotta worry of half-life radiation on depleted uranium??
@megamanx181x, have to worry? No. Should you worry? Yes.
@BigJohnson86, oh bother
@megamanx181x, Quick Google search says no actually. Depleted uranium emits mainly alpha radiation. Pretty harmless unless you get it inside your body. (Per EPA.gov)
@satan of the north, if you used a thick paint, it would stop most of the Alpha decay.
@Raki Zaki, True, a sheet off paper will stop an alpha particle. Could also always throw up some drywall too so you don't have uranium walls. Might feel kinda like a dungeon
@megamanx181x, depleted uranium is used to shield gamma radiation sources such as Iridium-192 and Cobalt-60. It actually works well as shielding.
@satan of the north, it’s actually pretty much the worst thing to be surrounded by. If it gets inside you you’re fvcked but it’s so large in terms of actual physical size it’s blocked by the layer of dead skin on your body. If you can do any shielding it’s probably less radiation exposure than working a job outdoors.
@satan of the north, this is good!
@bigmaclevel3, thanks I learned something today!
He'd have used graphite but there was no graphite
@SimonPetrikov, There was graphite on the roof though
@HeadNode, There was. No. Graphite.
DID HE PRESS THE AZ-5 BUTTON??!!???
