Fun with Polonium! I had some Polonium back in 1947 when I was a precocious six-year-old...

''Polonium has few applications, and those are related to its radioactivity: heaters in space probes, antistatic devices, and sources of neutrons and alpha particles. Besides being radioactive, polonium is extremely toxic.

Due to the short half-life of all its isotopes, its natural occurrence is limited to tiny traces of the fleeting polonium-210 (with a half-life of 138 days).''
