I'm heading to Chicago this weekend. What science/geeky/historical places should I check out?
There are lots of other recent Chicago threads which cover food, bars, theatre, and museums, e.g.
My curiosity was piqued by looking to see if Fermi's atomic pile had some sort of memorial, and it does
. The other thing I found via Wiki is Millikan's house
(of oil drop fame). Can you recommend any other interesting sites or cool stuff on the U of Chicago campus? I'd be interested in seeing anything to do with the economics department as well. If you can think of anything else interesting and geeky I'm game.
