Take it if you want to go to the planet!
Fluorine can be used for more than just rocket fuel.
Fluorine can be used for rocket fuel, toothpaste, medicine, as a weapon, and many other things. Fluorine has highly reactive properties so it makes the perfect rocket fuel! Fluorine also has properties to help fight cavities, which makes for great toothpaste. In medicine, fluorine acts as a buffer for the medicine in a pill. It lengthens the time between ingestion and digestion so the pill can do it's work. Fluorine is highly toxic, so you can give it to enemies to take 'em down. A dose of about five or ten grams is enough to kill a human adult! So, are you ready to pack your fluorine and go to Desolatopia?
