RADIUM'S POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 2 February 1917

RADIUM'S POWER. Radium, as explained by Professor Darwin, is a substance which is per haps millions of times more powerful than dynamite. Thus it is estimated that an ounce of radium would con tain enough power to raise 10,000 tons a mile above the earth's sur face. Another way of stating the same estimate is this :—The energy needed to tow a ship of 12,000 tons a dis tance of 6,000 sea miles at 15 knots is contained in 22 ounces of radium. The Saxon probably burns 5 or 6 thousand tons of coal on a voyage of approximately the same length.
