I thought it was just an interesting sculpture

Two Aprils ago, I was taking a walk around the University of Chicago, my old almost alma-mater and former place of employment and I came across some interesting stuff I hadn’t seen before.

The first was a really weird domed structure I blogged about before.  And further on the same street there was this interesting sculpture, so I had to go take a look.

Turns out it was more than just a work of art:

I was feeling really eerie to be stepping on the site of the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction.  It was pretty darn trippy, too.

I’ve been thinking a bit about physics lately…and will probably change my focus in the next few posts to some things less dreary and more interesting.  At least I hope.

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
