  • “Uranium was named after the Greek god Uranus. For many, that heritage could not have been more appropriate. Uranus sired abnormal children, some with only one eye, and the metal is supposed to do the same. Uranus was castrated, and the metal is alleged to sterilise. Uranus shed blood on the earth, releasing furies; uranium has shed blood, and continues to inspire furious debate. For others, however, the fact that Uranus was a myth is the most important feature, because to them the public understanding of uranium is mired in fable.”
