Re: camera detectors

There is uv filtering in digital cameras. Its an easy topic to explore. The bigger issue is whether the deleterious effects on human fertility caused by tritium should even be explored. This is, to my mind the single largest philosophical quandary humankind ever faced. On the one hand , the earth ha...

Re: Overhoff 200SB

It says it has a discriminator. Radon in rain? Probably not. Could anyone out there be interested in hotwiring this device to a therimino for me? I would pay whatever it costs and it might be an interesting project.

Overhoff 200SB

I purchased an Overhoff 200SB and could get no readings any where. Except after 2 rain storms both read 50 uCi/m3 This seems Like a lot of tritium. Either a Canadian reactor recently refueled or Fukashima is worse than imaginable. Is there any way to test this meter? I won't go near a tritium source...

Another tidbit from our childhood can be found in Disneys Our friend the atom They had to change the ending to the story of the Fisherman and the lamp. In the original, the fisherman didn't believe the genie and tossed him back into the sea.

Re: tritium

we've purchased a plot of land with a confined aquifer below. We will be drilling 1000 ft to tap into its radium contaminated water. it contains such high levels of it that drinking a glass of it will expose us to the equivalent of consuming an 1/4 of a BRAZIL NUT. But since it is 10000 years old it...

Watch Carl Sagan's vivid description of the venera landing. It's quite obvious this led to his invention of the B.S. meter

camera detectors

I've had success photographing americium in atomlight liquid scintillator with a 6400 iso camera. I didn't even remove the uv filter. Here's what I'd like to know. If I use a 400,000 iso camera with the uv filter removed would I be able to detect the much lower energy of tritium. A camera like this ...

Re: tritium

Thanks for the response. Sometimes a persons belief system gets in the way of facts. This isn't supposed to happen in science. You can work your way backwards, starting with the Russians supposedly landing probes on Venus. Anyone reasonably intelligent person can agree that landing a one ton probe t...
