On this date...
1933 Leó Szilárd was waiting at a red light and came up with the idea of a nuclear chain reaction, forever changing the world! "Slizard read an article in the Times of London rejecting the idea of any practical use for atomic energy. So incensed was Slizard, the story goes, that he stood right there at a traffic signal in Bloomsbury and dreamed up the nuclear chain reaction. A year later he patented the concept." via https://www.wired.com/2007/09/dayintech-0912/

BTW, Tony mentioned in the news today about the firefighter in Salisbury who is running in full firefighter gear: "Fire Chief Brad McLeod plans to run the 2 kilometre distance in full fire gear…including the air tanks! Chief Brad told reporters that he’s doing it as a fundraiser for the charity…and that if he hit $1,000 he’d also run with a mask hooked up to the air pack that will be strapped to his back…as of this morning he’s raised almost $1,700! So mask up Chief Brad! Donate here: https://run.terryfox.ca/page/salisbury-fire-brad-m"
