    Re: More information about carrying a sextant with radium
    From: Alexandre Eremenko
    Date: 2013 Mar 17, 21:25 -0400

    The sad story by Paul Brewer about a bubble sextant stopped
    in the shipment in Rotterdam, because the radioactive bubble attachment
    presumably violated some rules about shipment of radioactive materials.
    And the sextant was lost as a result.
    
    Alex.
