Here is an excel file I threw together comparing the setlists from the nights that I DJ’ed. Songs I played both nights are highlighted in red, and songs that were the same song but different versions (i.e. remix vs original) are highlighted in blue. Continue Reading
Did a few Gamma Specs today, here are the results.
The first one was an orange Fiestaware cup. I believe they colored it with Uranium-Oxide, which is what makes it radioactive. The results here show us that Thorium-234 and Uranium-235 are both certainly present.
Here’s last night’s playlist. Pretty different than many of mine; there was one significant music folder I tried not to play out of, and by the end of the night I think I only played one song out of there. A lot of stuff I usually play (early in the night) didn’t get played at all. Also, I went a significant amount of the night before I realized I didn’t play almost anything above 100bpm. Once I realized this, I actively tried to keep it up. Continue Reading
Gamma Spectroscopy is the identification of radioactive isotopes based on the gamma radiation energies emitted by a source. As a home gamma spectrometry hobbyist, I use radioactive sources such as vaseline glass (colored using Uranium), orange Fiestaware (colored with Uranium oxide), Radium-painted watches and clocks, Thorium lantern mantles, and even Uranium ore samples. Most of these are examples of common household items that emit radiation, and I find many of these items at antique stores (most of these things made today do not contain radioactive elements).
