Re: A few pics from a new-to-me exhibit in the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History
I'm no nuclear science history expert, but wrt the original post, that 535 seems out of place. The criticality experiments were generally carried out in the 1940's and the 5 series was not available till the 1950's. Afterall, by 1945 they knew what it took to make a pile of uranium go off.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
But in the 1950's the techniques of Nuclear spectroscopy were being developed and that scope would have been at home reading the pulse outputs of scintilation counters. I used such scopes in Columbia University's undergraduate physics labs in the 1980's for just such pulse counting. they had not updated the labs in 30 years (!!) so it was very much like working in the 1950s
Someone correct me if I am wrong in my time estimates.

Hmmm, is it an abandoned site or is someone taking care of it?
