Short film of the Day: the Chicago nuclear pile, done in Lego.

So my wife and I are watching this, and we get to the point where they’re pulling out the nuclear control rods on the pile. I turn to my wife (the engineer) and I go, “They were all kinds of mad back then, huh?”  She said not a word as she nodded enthusiastically.

But ‘Chicago Pile-1: A Brick History’ is nonetheless rather well done. And informative! Good for kids and people who need a primer/refresher.
