Uranium Hexafluoride is highly toxic, radioactive, corrosive to most metals, and reacts violently with water.

The best answer we have received is ‘A vast Quantity’, which is also the only way we have been able to describe it. We just don’t know. Although one recent article stated that it is some 60,000 tonnes. This is exactly what we want to know.
