Eat Your Heart Out, Iran

So this is a toy from 1960.

atomicenergylab

It is an atomic energy lab. Ya know, for the kids.

Which is probably a cool thing to have created, if done as a strict simulation, because encouraging weefolk to go into science and energy is for the best. And also, the Soviets.

But this toy didn’t appear to be much of a similation. From Oak Ridge Associated Universities website:

It features three experimental setups (a spinthariscope, a cloud chamber, and an electroscope) and two radioactive sources (uranium ore and radium).

And to be clear:

All of the equipment has to be assembled, none of it is ready to go right out of the box.

Experiential learning, we suppose.
