Why is it in inches and not in metric, Thailand has metric system as metering distance.

Let alone that the length is incorrectly reported, many other sources declare its length being 30 cm (ca 12 inches, not 8).

Besides, caesium 137 is NOT invisible. The element itself is metallic, but in the tube is most likely present as chloride (CsCl), which is a white powder, soluble in water.

No mention of curie content.
