Uhhh... Jeff...

It is more than just hot here... It's sizzling! Oops, now it's raining!

Holler when you get here!  I'd enjoy meeting your students!

Hi Franz,

CP-5 is Chicago Pile-5:


It was the first reactor built on the Argonne East (Lemont IL) site.

The naming convention started with CP-1, the first man-made nuclear  
reactor built on the campus of the University of Chicago.

40 C is very nice. I hope to see it when I go to New Mexico in a few
