> Dear List, I did a "consult" on a threat analysis, and used the Goiania
incident as my inspiration-although I posited a very different delivery
system and amount. Would anyone know (offhand-no research, please) the
chemistry of the threat, so I can provide a good answer to their question.
(I'll bet Jose' knows!)...................................Thank you, Ed

> Ed,
> I got a question on your scenario from a reviewer. Is the cesium in the
form of a powder or crystaline? What size in microns? If not 1-5 u could it
be ground fine enough to be respired? Or could it be dissolved in water and
sprayed as a liquid?
