Isn't Cesium 137 and/or Americium used in modern smoke detectors?


Steve: I couldn't find anything on that, did find this:

"The ionization-type smoke detectors use a tiny Americium source to generate alpha particles. Cobalt-60 does not generate alpha particles.

Alpha radiation is actually a helium-4 nucleus - two protons and two neutrons. It has very limited penetrating power because it is a big, heavy particle and it tends to collide (scatter) when it tries to go through anything, even just air. The detector makes use of the fact that alpha particles ionize the heck out of air, and are scattered by anything in the air. The cobalt-60 decays by beta and gamma emission, and that kind of radiation has "too much" penetrating power to make the detector usable the way it is set up."

Cesium is standard Islamic terrorist radiological material of choice. The "glowing blue powder" event down in Brazil remains the world's prime test for radiological terrorism. Because of its use in medical devices, it's all over the world and easily accessible -- if accumulation is difficult.

Americium is used by the oil industry and Cesium-137 was the culprit that magnified the Chernobyl disaster.

Cesium chloride, being a powder, is what makes it so attractive to terrorists. Wrap a few sticks of dynamite around a vial of cesium chloride and -- poof -- gamma ray emitting dust goes everywhere.

New fictional novel "Good Till Your Last Breath" by Barry Caulfield - incorporates the use of Cesium137 to wipe a bunch of corrupt politicians and ends in the Oval Office.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
