@cinoclav I work for an independently owned/operated freestanding nuc med/PET scanning facility right outside of Washington, DC. We’re right across the street from one of the best hospitals in the nation according to US News and World Reports.
On the recommendation of someone here on Meh (I am sorry, I don’t recall who), I bought my son a bit of gallium. I was cleaning up gray hand prints from allll over the house for weeks!! It was quite cool to watch it melt in his hands though.
I’m not sure, but I think I got to work with liquid gallium back when I was doing a summer research program in a chemistry lab. It’s ~6 times denser than water, and it always freaked me out when I would pick up the little bottle. (I vaguely remember the liquid being “osmium iridium”, but after googling it, I don’t think that’s right. Whatever it was, it was crazy dense.)
We didn’t get to do any slo-mo though Thanks for the video, @blaineg
