 I ran example Hadr06 with attached macro : thermal neutron on a block of Co59, with and without radioactive decay registered (see

 As you can see, without radioactive decay, only neutron capture happens. With radioactive decay, one can see the decay Co60 --> Ni60

 Of course, this case test only neutronHP. You can re do the exercise with different, simple situations involving cascade packages.
