FAST RESPONSE. Connecting linkage of Westinghouse’s self-powered, fast-response neutron flux detector is shown here after insertion of the detector in a reactor core. The cobalt wire detector responds to thermal neutrons in 10-14 second. The fast response makes it ideal for monitoring the neutron flux in reactor test loops.

Swings and roundabouts: playground equipment by Isamu Noguchi-

Isamu Noguchi is best know for his sculptural wood and glass coffee table and his paper ‘Akari’ lights. This playground equipment was designed in 1939 for Ala Moana park in Hawaii but unfortunately was never built as the park comissioner died before the scheme was realised. I’m not sure how successful the equipment would be for play, but visually it’s pretty amazing (and that’s the most important thing)!
