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.
