|Oklo was natural nuclear reactor about 1.8 billion years ago in Gabon, West Africa.|
Thirteen nuclear reactors were discovered along a 200-metre uranium mine bed.
Through a quirk of nature, concentration of U-235 were high enough to permit nuclear fissions to occur.
Scientists think these natural reactors could have functioned intermittently for a million years. The average...
