Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab (1950-1951).

the atomic kit

The set came with four types of uranium ore, a beta-alpha source (Pb-210), a pure beta source (Ru-106), a gamma source (Zn-65?), a spinthariscope, a cloud chamber with its own short-lived alpha source (Po-210), an electroscope, a geiger counter, a manual, a comic book (Dagwood Splits the Atom) and a government manual “Prospecting for Uranium.”

If I can manage to get one of these, can I use it in Arcata? Would the toxic’s group have a cow about this?
