Yes, only $39 for 5 grams well I thought it would be illegal to sell uranium but apparently not... I am actually considering buying this.

anyone else? I reckon we should all buy 5 grams each and make a nuke, for the UG missile silo.

Holy crap uranium, hey?

There was a thread on this a while I if I remember correctly. One of the comments were:

"I bought some 4.5 billion years ago and when it arrived it half empty!"

Not all Uranium is radioactive and hence not dangerous in that respect. Furthermore use of it to release energy requires it to be 'enriched', which this probably isn't considering its relative cheapness.

In other words there's not reason for it to be illegal.

ATHEDIT: What? The one they're selling IS high purity and radioactive...

Yeah according to US law the maximum amount they're allowed to sell to the public is 5 grams.

I believe uranium-238, (Which they're selling) is used in nukes, not as the 'explosive' but to surround the fissile mass and reflect neutrons into it causing it to go critical... I think.

What they're selling is high purity Uranium-238, which is radioactive but not suitable for nuclear weapons. That's U-239, which is present in only a very small percentage mixed in with more common U-238, and since the stuff they're selling is "high purity", there will probably be even less.

So basically, you were mostly correct prior to your edit.

Things are only radioactive if the proton:neutron ratio is too high. I was under the impression that the ratio was still pretty stable for un-enriched Uranium. On revision of my physics textbook I now know that U-238 is unstable though.

EDIT: Also, if you had U-237 or U-236 or something, less neutrons means more stable, hence less radioactive. You could get light enough Uranium which wouldn't be radioactive by decreasing the number of neutrons.

I think.

That's U-238, which is practically useless.

U-235 is the interesting one.

I think it's the other way around. Since neutrons are pretty much glue for protons.

Uranium isn't really radioactive at all. 4.5 billion years is a long time for half of it to have decayed radioactively. It's only dangerous when it is all forced to split at once.

Having more/less protons would make it a different element though. The bigger number denotes the neutrons, which can be removed/added without changing the atomic number or element. That's how isotopes are made.
