Radium and the Secret of Life

Sooner than the hydrogen bomb indelibly linked radioactivity with demise, many chemists, physicians, botanists, and geneticists believed that radium may well carry the key to existence. Physicists and chemists early on defined the wondrous new aspect in realistic phrases equivalent to “decay” and “half-life,” and made widespread references to the “natural selection” and “evolution” of the weather.
