When Japan surrendered in 1945, World War II was brought to a close and the United States' plans for a third atomic bomb drop were abandoned. The plutonium core at the centre of the bomb was shipped to New Mexico for further experiments. Despite avoiding use in war, this plutonium core was still intent on killing. Being at the centre of the first two criticality accidents in history, it was dubbed "The Demon Core."Buy tickets to our live streamed shows:https://sospresents.com/authors/dogoonSupport the show and get rewards like bonus episodes: patreon.com/DoGoOnPodCheck out our AACTA nominated web series: https://www.youtube.com/user/stupidoldchannel Submit a topic idea directly to the hat: dogoonpod.com/Submit-a-TopicTwitter: @DoGoOnPodInstagram: @DoGoOnPodFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/DoGoOnPod/Email us: dogoonpod@gmail.comCheck out our other podcasts:Book Cheat: https://play.acast.com/s/book-cheatPrime Mates: https://play.acast.com/s/prime-mates/Listen Now: https://play.acast.com/s/listen-now/Our awesome theme song by Evan Munro-Smith and logo by Peader ThomasREFERENCES AND FURTHER READING:https://www.newyorker.com/tech/annals-of-technology/demon-core-the-strange-death-of-louis-slotinhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demon_corehttps://www.nndb.com/people/053/000168546/http://blog.nuclearsecrecy.com/2016/05/23/the-blue-flash/https://www.sciencealert.com/the-chilling-story-of-the-demon-core-and-the-scientists-who-became-its-victims-plutonium-bomb-radiation-wwiihttps://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/demon-core-that-killed-two-scientistsSee acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
