Chicago Pile-1, the history of nuclear

by futuronucleare on 2012-12-02

Today is a very important day in nuclear history, as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the first controlled nuclear fission in the Chicago Pile-1 reactor, under the direction of Enrico Fermi and his team of 49 scientists.

More information on this landmark experiment can be found on Wikipedia here.

The Wikipedia article also shows this great drawing of Chicago Pile-1:

Proud to be a supporter of nuclear, proud to be an Italian, today!
