The High Flux Beam Reactor (HFBR) was a small research reactor that operated at Brookhaven from 1965 through 1996 and provided a source of neutrons for multidisciplinary scientific research. The structure of the “protein factory” of the cell, the 16-part ribosome, was first revealed at the HFBR, as was the structure of myelin, the protein that coats nerve cells. In a series of experimental milestones, scientists using the HFBR determined the structures of the 23 amino acids that make up every protein in every cell in living things.

This is baseball for me.
This is what I thought of when the engineers at the ANS conference at Penn State all started doing this in the club we had rented out.
I’m getting really tired of listening to all the engineers spend more time bitching about how hard their lives and all they need to get done rather than just effing getting to work.
40 years later and it’s still a moment we could watch again and again!
