The U-238 Atomic Energy lab was a chemistry set that was sold in 1950-1951 by the famous Gilbert Company of the erector set fame. The complete set is shown at the following url.

Yes things were much more fun back in the days before toy makers had lawyers on staff :) Sorry Lawman !

U.S. had an enormous headstart regarding atomic energy.

slightly OT but related: When I was a kid I loooved LEGOs. Building things with all those blocks was fun. Today, LEGO has fully functional and programmable robotics kit - LEGO Mindstorms! Couple of more years and my kids will be big enough so that I can play with this..... errr, I mean they can play with it :)

I keep trying to convince my wife I need a lego mindstorm kit, and she keeps balking.

Oddly, she has no problem with my rocketry addiction. Go figure.
