Re: The episode "Distant Origin"

What about radioactive waste?

Plutonium has a half life of 80 million years, and although it is found sparingly in nature, a massive clott from a war, accident or commercial venture would look suspicious.

Oh, and there's three hundred (useful) isotopes discovered so far that can only be made in a reactor, that should not be present near dinosaur fossils.

It's also possible that seemingly naturally found radioactive elements, do need to be made in a reactor too, but they are just leftover remnants of the Voth culture and wwejust figured wrong that they are naturally forming.

Which means that our leap into atomic technology was a million times easier than the Voth's who had a smaller table of elements to work with before they started smashing atoms.
