The world’s first human-made nuclear reactor

Hank brings us a little science history, telling us the tale of the world’s first human-made nuclear reactor, which was built by a team of scientists and students led by Enrico Fermi in a converted squash court under a football field in Chicago. Yes, that Chicago.


Scientists discovered a natural nuclear reactor that had existed in Africa about two billion years ago, which is why we can’t say that this is the world’s first EVER nuclear reactor
