It was the key facility in the huge effort called the Manhattan Project to build the world's first atomic bomb.
A claim that might be reasonably disputed by Los Alamos.
Went to the Oak Ridge facility about 15 years ago. Is a good museum in a beautiful part of the country.
They have a mock-up of that first reactor there, the crudity is chilling!
Just like Site Trinity. The “clean room” was in an old farmhouse with hand-lettering in dripping green paint over the door.
Today, we’d never get the job done.
