Description

  • The first several minutes of this film are construction scenes. Viewers see Florida Hall and Tully Gym at FSU. Then, a two-engine prop National Airlines plane arrives and a wooden box marked "radioactive" is unloaded and put in the trunk of a car. The box is taken out of the trunk and opened by a man wearing a lab coat and gloves. He opens a small sphere, takes out an object with tweezers and holds it near a Geiger counter. Then, three men work at a lab bench using tweezers and jars.
