CP-1 at 80: The events of December 2, 1942
On the eve of the 80th anniversary of the first controlled nuclear chain reaction, Nuclear Newswire is back with the second of three prepared #ThrowbackThursday posts of CP-1 coverage from past issues of Nuclear News.
On November 17, we surveyed the events of 1942 leading up to the construction of Chicago Pile-1, an assemblage of graphite bricks and uranium “pseudospheres” used to achieve and control a self-sustaining fission reaction on December 2, 1942, inside a squash court at the University of Chicago’s Stagg Field.
Today we’ll pick up where we left off, as construction of CP-1 began on November 16, 1942.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) conducts research, development, and demonstration projects for the benefit of the public in the United States and internationally. As an independent, non profit organization for public interest energy and environmental research, we focus on electricity generation, delivery, and use in collaboration with the electricity sector, its stakeholders and others to enhance the quality of life by making electric power safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible. Through global collaboration with nuclear power plant operators, regulatory agencies, and other research organizations, EPRI develops cost-effective technologies, technical guidance, and knowledge transfer tools that help maximize the value of existing nuclear assets and inform the deployment of new nuclear technology.
Join one of the manned informal booth times slots below. Talk directly to recruiters from EPRI and ask questions about the organization and positions available.
