Unrelated to this post, below is an example of
eclectic science esoterica 

 A 210polonium fueled SNAP-3 Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (RTG) with the vent tube for the helium4 decay product on the right. Made at Mound Laboratory in 1958, the heat source was 96 thermal watts at birth. Po-210 has a half life of 138 days and a thermal output of 140 watts/gram.
A radiograph of the polonium-210 fueled SNAP-3 Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (RTG) with the heat source being the inverted truncated cone in the center surrounded by thermocouples. Made by Mound Laboratory in 1958.
