Gotta be safer than dissolving fuel slugs in nitric acid in a bucket, though..??

I like all the news reports about how coins and jewelry at some distances (hundreds of meters) is now radioactive due to neutron activation. So much for the public geiger counter scans during the event (which WE all know don't detect neutrons)..
