Uranium - Twisting the Dragon's Tail
The story of Uranium is part science, part history, and all epic adventure. It's a journey through place and time, around the most dangerous and wondrous rock on Earth.
Born violently in the collapse of a star long ago, Uranium is woven throughout the fabric of Earth. It has properties like no other rock: the element spits energy which can transform DNA, shaping the very nature of what it means to be human. Once considered worthless, this rock has become the most desirable, most expensive, and most feared substances in the world. And on a warming planet with limited fossil fuel, uranium may transform once again - into our savior.
Uranium: Twisting the Dragon's Tale is an action-packed journey to explore the most dangerous, wondrous, and controversial rock on Earth. Join physicist Dr. Derek Muller, creator of YouTube channel Veritasium, as he travels to Russia, Japan, North America, Europe, and Australia to explore the vast world of this fascinating element. .
