How 'Bright' is Deadly Radiation?

  • Published on Jul 27, 2019
  • I was curious how bright a deadly dose of radiation would be after I watched Chernobyl. Hopefully this video helps you visualize what a dangerous dose of radiation would look like.

      Justin Y. I actually had an uncle that was part of the nuclear tests. Soldiers were positioned at certain spots. My uncle happened to be very lucky, the radiated heat wave burnt his scalp and forearm, primarily his forearm because he covered his eyes. Now he has the inability to grow hair on his head or arm... which is great considering his buddy Officer Culligan was positioned half a mile closer, and his skin boiled off, he died from his burns 🥵

    Hey, Kevin! I saw this video 2 months ago, but now I watched it again, and now I have a question: how bad the deadly radiation would be, if magnesium-fire was radio-active?

    I've worked on nuclear reactors and even have employed NDT procedures using xrays on metal parts and such. There was intensive training which by necessity, accompanies the admittance. Said training included some seriously graphic videos showing the results of "accidental" exposure.
    Based on that alone, I could only imagine the extreme suffering endured with opening the xray machine core and sharing it as if it were novelty found in a candied popcorn box.
    That stuff is mild though when compared to most of the materials used in industry.
    Humans are such an enigma. We have the capabilities to reach for the stars and yet, we will root through mud for a shiny absurd.
    Interesting video. Oh, and that HBO series...pure mind candy. Not based on fact or reality.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Actually you CAN see it if it's dark. Not directly, but some components of it produce Cherenkov radiation, which is a secondary type of radiation caused by... ahh, everybody would tl:dr this so :snip: and well the point is, it is visible light. Antique glow-in-the dark stuff that looks like the plastic in modern toys but doesn't wear off or need to be exposed to light actually glows from the radiation emitted by small amounts of uranium.

    The good thing is, some insects can detect it, and if that was a deadly light (Emiting massive amounts of gama rays, enough to make it glow like a light bulb), it would kill everyone nearby. Especially the flys! MWAHAHAHAHA
