Frankly, I expected lots of criticism about the Geiger counter because it seems like such a cheesy bit of showmanship. For the specific item in question (recreating the find), it was just for show but I do carry it in cases where there might be radioactive material at a site. In older airplanes the instrument faces and some switches had radium markings for visibility at night. In the case of the D-21 drone, some parts were manufactured from magnesium-thorium alloys so it was a legitimate piece of equipment to have.
