Not to pick at you Wolfgang, but radioactive radiation made me a chuckle a bit.
(You could have said dangerous or lethal instead, as I know that there are several forms of radiation, Cellular signal for example is carried on one such type).

Good humored jostle aside, interesting read. Going to have to do some research into this whole business.

Edited for clarification and to fix typo with Wolfgang

I though lead and hydrogen were the best protective agents against radiation?

(There's a type of radiation that is commonly found in in the outer space and easily stopped by hydrogen, though lead would only amplify it)

I wonder how they power this badboy. Having to be tethered to a power cable would kind of destroy the whole mobility thing. . . and there's no batteries with enough capacity to keep this thing lifting heavy objects for hours on end while still being small enough to be mounted to the suit.

T-51b's got around this problem by way of Microfusion cells. Too bad we don't have those.

We wouldn't have the funding or the technology for Skynet in the first place. NASA gets about an annual $19 billion budget, US military spends about $20 billion on air conditioning (Afghanistan, etc) annually.

We're a welfare-warfare country.

There is......... i.e. a radio station broadcasting it's consider Radio Frequency Radiation.

And what about DARPA? They spend a lot as well. (not saying that it isn't worth it, but it's a big budget.)

They might be able to fit Skynet into their budget. Soon as we have the technology to do so that is. =P

Hope that the experiment doesn't go wrong like the prototype iron man suit made by Hammer in Iron Man 2. That scene is always on my mind :D

Technicaly there is only one type of radiation: Electro-Magnetic one, which is divided by wavelenght with various names (infrared radiation, gamma radiation, radio frequency radiation, microwave radiation, etc)

How about Beta, Alpha and Neutron radiation? All particles.
