leave a comment »

So I wrote about ionizing radiation dose a couple of weeks ago. But it wasn’t until today that I found a good, visual rendering of the equivalences between radiation doses from different activities. Randall Munroe, the delightful mind behind XKCD, has made a chart of common radiation doses, standards, and equivalences. It’s definitely worth a look.
