    It would be very interesting to know what kind of testing this device was used for. I could speculate some speculation but won't.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    It's practical for the military (Navy) so they can go without refueling carriers and subs for 15-20 years, and is still very controllable.

    It wasn't a reactor - it had far less than a critical mass - it WAS a source of neutrons for chemical analysis. See for example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron...ation_analysis

    It was not in the basement or subbasement of the Kodak Research Labs (B-59). I worked in one extensively and had a key for the other. Nothing nuclear in either one.

    Sorry. Maybe in the analytical division? IDK. Never saw one or heard of one.

    As facinating as this story is, and I'm enjoying it! The LA Times Article has an interesting line.

    Kodak. The company that makes cameras and printers.
