Nuclear Reactor @ MIT

Found this video really fascinating. Awesome that they have a student running the control desk of the reactor!

Some of the experiments like adding the Silicon, or the neutron beam for experiments had a bit of a Half Life 2 vibe about it lol :stuck_out_tongue:


Great video, loved how simple to understand they made the explanation. The silicon part was kinda funny, β€œare they doing some sort of nucleus doping, …” doping explanation pops up, β€œyep thats what they do, amazing.” The hot box was cool too as well as the reactor itself.

We live in a wonderful time where insights like this are easily shared, never looked in an active reactor before.
