No - nothing new!  This is the old classic The Double Edged Sword.

I have written permission to distribute this however I feel appropriate 
and I can't think of a distribution much more appropriate than RADSAFE.

Yes - it IS dated and many poo poo it for that reason - but I feel its 
still valid as the physics of x-rays and the nature of people has NOT 

What has changed is the safety designed into modern analytical x-ray 
machines and this video is very good at showing just why that has 
happened.  AND - even with modern systems interlocks CAN and sometimes 
ARE defeated - and this video is very good at showing WHY NOT to do that.

Download it here:


Its a nearly 450 MB download.

It is highly recommended to have a supply of popcorn handy to accompany 

I don't know how long I'll keep it up on my Google Drive - but I'm not 
hurting for space right now so probably a while.

Now if I can only get my hands on a copy of: /A Guide To The Safe Use Of 
X/-/ray Diffraction And Spectrometry Equipment/ Monograph by E.B.M. 
/Martin/ (ISBN: 9780905927114)  I SHOULD have scanned it LONG ago when I 
had it available.
