Technicians Don Johnson and John Spencer examine the Kevatron, a special type of atom smasher built by Samuel K. Allison, professor of Physics at the University of Chicago. It is used to produce nuclear fission in the lighter elements. Costing only $10,000, the Kevatron proves its worth by producing nuclear particles equal to those produced by $450,000 worth of radium, the original atomic element. The Kevatron is another of the interesting sights at the university's new research center.
