Nuclear Reactor Explainer

· One min read


Tried to explain basic concepts in nuclear reactors using plain language and visualizations. Got carried away with the idea of a javscript particle monte carlo code. It is obviously a bit garbage, but the visualization is nice and the results are not completely off despite some radical simplifications.

Took a little longer than expected. Don't recommend web dev work. Victory feels hollow.
