A random bit of flotsam cresting the floodwaters of the font of all knowledge:

As the material was dangerously radioactive and hard and strong, and using remote controlled systems was not possible due to high radiation interfering with electronics, shooting at it from an AK-47 was used to split off chunks for analysis.

Although on the balance of things, I'm chuffed not to have to have been there that day, the use of a Kalashnikov as a tool to advance Science isn't something you read about just everyday.
