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 2020 Utility Working Conference (UWC) will be a virtual meeting of the minds to generate strong, practical recommendations designed to address the industry’s most pressing needs. Its focus is to analyze cost drivers common to all nuclear power plants and recommend programs and processes to improve their efficiency and effectiveness and to provide innovative solutions that enable a significant reduction in operating expenses.
