|HIFAR (High Flux Australian Reactor) was Australia's first nuclear reactor. It was built at the Australian Atomic Energy Commission (later ANSTO) Research Establishment at Lucas Heights.|
Based on the DIDO reactor at Harwell in the UK, it is cooled and moderated by heavy water, and the fuel is enriched uranium metal. There is also a graphite neutron reflector surrounding the core. It is u...
|The atomic cannon was a huge piece of ordnance built by the United States in the mid-1950s to hurl nuclear shells far enough that they wouldn't kill the people who fired them. While far more sensible WWIII technology than, say, the atomic hand grenade, the atomic cannon did have its detractors and tactical limitations. ||01/11/2006||733|

|The decommissioned Boiling Nuclear Superheater(BONUS) reactor, located northwest of Rincón, Puerto Rico, was developed as a prototype nuclear power plant to investigate the technical and economic feasibility of the integral boiling-superheating concept. This small-scale nuclear reactor produced saturated steam in the central portion of the reactor core, superheated it in four surrounding “super...||07/19/2007||609|

|From these pits, the atomic bombs "Little Boy" and "Fat Man" were loaded into the B-29'ers "Enola Gay" and "Bockscar" on Augst 6 and 9, 1945 and eventually dropped above Hiroshima and Nagasaki. "Little Boy" caused the death of approxiametly 200.000 people by 1950, of whom 70.000 were killed instantly by the blast.|
"Fat Man" caused the death of approxiametly 80.000 people by the e...

|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...
