Wake up and Smell the Radiation 

What does radiation smell like?

It doesn’t smell like anything at small concentrations. If the source is close, and the field level exceeds 1000 roentgens per hour (which is a very high indicator), then the air acquires a characteristic, barely perceptible aroma. It smells like ozone, like before a thunderstorm.

Isn’t this divinely poetic, a subtle rebuke from nature perhaps? That the smell of impending doom and death could smell like the anticipation of rain.

Radiation can also be tasted

Many elements give a metallic taste on the tongue and strong dryness in the mouth If you remember, all the victims of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant suffered from thirst and asked for water.

Only plutonium stands out from the palette of tastes. It tastes sweet.
