Uranium

A naturally occurring radioactive element with the atomic number 92 and an atomic weight of approximately 238. Two principal isotopes are uranium-235 (found in 0.7 percent of natural uranium), which is fissile, and uranium-238 (found in 99.3 percent of natural uranium), which is fissile only by fast neutrons. The half-life is 7.04 x 10 8 years.
