MFTL – Multi Functional Tritium Lantern:: Is that a radioactive keychain/bottle opener in your pocket… or are you just really happy to see me? Tritium (symbol T or 3H, also known as hydrogen-3) is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen and one of the most valuable substances on earth, with a market price of $30,000 per gram. The light produced is literally ”on” at all times, it’s intensity isn’t reduced after a few hours and will last non-stop for 20 years. This is truly a ”nuclear powered”…

Space-filling model of part of the crystal structure of lithium hydride. Lithium deuteride - The corresponding lithium-6 deuteride, formula 6Li2H or 6LiD, is the fusion fuel in thermonuclear weapons. In warheads of the Teller-Ulam design, a fission trigger explosion heats, compresses and bombards 6LiD with neutrons to produce tritium in an exothermic reaction. The deuterium and tritium (both isotopes of hydrogen) then fuse to produce helium-4, a neutron and 17.59 MeV of energy.
Luminox Special Ops Tritium Diver. A favorite of the Navy Seals....Tritium is a radioactive isotope of Hydrogen and glows constantly for nearly 20 years without needing sunlight to charge....its a science thing :) Look up Tritium on Wikipedia.....it is fascinating how it works....really!
Hydrogen is a chemical element with chemical symbol H and atomic number 1. With an atomic weight of 7000100794000000000♠1.00794 u, hydrogen is the lightest element on the periodic table. Its monatomic form is the most abundant chemical substance in the Universe, constituting roughly 75% of all baryonic mass.[note 1] Non-remnant stars are mainly composed of hydrogen in the plasma state. The most common isotope of hydrogen, termed protium , has one proton and no neutrons.
“Tritium is a highly radioactive isotope of hydrogen, with a specific activity of almost 10,000 curies per gram… Since tritium has the same chemical properties as hydrogen, it can combine with oxygen to form water.” ~ Arjun Makhijani, Ph.D. http://www.nuclearworld.net/
Unique rings made out of Titanium with three embedded Tritium vials. Tritium (symbol T or 3H, also known as hydrogen-3) is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen and one of the most valuable substances on earth, with a market price of 30.000$ per gram.
