American History - Dec. 2, 2014

Chicago Pile-1 aka the Stagg Field Reactor

Constructed beneath an abandoned stand of bleachers at University of Chicago, the world's first nuclear reactor demonstrated that a safe, controlled, self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was possible. Steve Koppes of the University of Chicago notes, "The Atomic Age began at 3:25 p.m. on Dec. 2, 1942--quietly, in secrecy, on a squash court under the west stands of old Stagg Field...."

This successful demonstration of the possibilities of nuclear energy lasted 28 minutes and was a milestone in the history of the United States, physics and all of human history.
