  1. A sailor walked into the reactor room on a USN attack sub. The alarms on the San Francisco sounded. The sailor was a welder with a tungsten welding electrode that was 2 percent thoriated. The electrode in solid form poses no danger to a person holding it. ET reactor operators in the navy receive less ionizing radiation than someone standing in the open at sea level and far less than being on an airliner at 30,000 feet.
