Louis Slotin

Louis Slotin was a Canadian Physicist who was killed in an accident during the Manhattan Project. He was not the only person to do, nor even the only one to be poisoned by radiation because of an experiment gone bad. I spoke about him on Sunday in my sermon, so I thought I would share this excellent re-enactment of his accident from the movie "Fat Man and Little Boy"

As far I know the recreation is pretty accurate. Slotin died nine days later in great pain with his parents by bedside.
