Two basic types of radiation are alpha and beta particles. Alpha particle radiation is some kind of ionised helium atom that surrounds an electron, so when it moves through matter it either loses it or gains it standing still with a negative or positive displacement respectively. Beta particles (which make up beta-gamma radiation) are composed by two positrons circling each other and an electron further ahead; they rarely penetrate matter but they can be very dangerous if they do.  Alpha particles don’t obey this rule as they always leave their nuclei without losing or gaining mass – even
