E12826: How to Build a Nuclear Bomb in HSSP Spring 2019 (Feb. 23, 2019)
An instructive, practical course on how to build a nuclear bomb from the ground up. Includes a discussion of the involved physics, chemistry, and engineering. By the completion of the course, students should have a fundamental understanding sufficient to construct a small warhead just using leftovers from the previous evening's dinner. Additional, students will be able to apply these principles in understanding modern nuclear reactors, and will come out with a historical and ethical understanding of the nuclear age.
