Alpha, Beta, Gamma... let's get this straight.

Alpha radiation can be stopped by air. It's pretty strong at short distances, but in the long run, it immediately becomes weak, puny, and not a major threat.

Beta radiation can be stopped by thin layers of metal. It's mildly strong at short and medium distances, but takes a little more force to be stopped.

Gamma radiation? You better have lead walls, son. Gammas are out to get you. They may not hurt you in low doses, but watch what happens when they gang up on you.

We use gamma to sterilize products. Works awesome.

do gamma rays penetrate subatomic particles?

gammas may as well be sterile, themselves, for all the times they'll never get laid.
