    There is some dispute over the danger that was presented from the uranium.

    Excerpts from a web site follow:

    Uranium is not very radiotoxic,» said David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector who is now president of the Institute for Science and International Security in Washington, D.C.

    «The net effect of dispersing half a kilo of uranium _ who cares? Each person would get so little it would have no effect,» Albright said.

    And Alexander Glaser, a researcher at Princeton University's Program in Science and Global Security, said any discussion of dirty bombs in this case was «off topic.
    «Even naturally occurring uranium would be more effective than this in making a dirty bomb,» he said.

    Experts suggested the police may have confused a scientific reading of the material as dealing with its «concentration» of uranium-235, the most suitable form for a weapon, when in fact it was just a «confidence» level of the machine to give an accurate reading.

    I bet Dr. Emmitt Brown was looking to purchase it so that he could power his DeLorean and go Back to the Future.
