Caption: A sample of uranium ore conglomerate (also called pitchblend) from Ontario, Canada. This highly radioactive black ore is made up of uranium (U) and oxygen (O) in the chemical formula U3O8. The ore is important for the nuclear industry as a source of uranium. This image was created by placing a slice of radioactive conglomerate on a sheet of sensitive x-ray film for four days. The brightest spots represent the highest sources of radiation. colour then was applied to the black and white image.
