Did you ever see the fake cesium in a bathtub video? They blew up a ceramic bathtub full of water with about a gram of cesium. I don’t buy it.
Do you guys ever run into moisture concerns in your cesium fountain? I assume it is in high vacuum right?
That was the best laugh I’ve had yet today – yay cesium!

Ive never had the joy of working with cesium before.
i saw the whole movie that this is from back in high school in the early 80′s. it was fun. if i remember correctly, they also took a diamond. heated it up red hot with a torch and dropped it in liquid oxygen. it burned away. cool.
here is a link i found, but not to the same movie:
