Ping Pong Fission
The experiment was conducted for an AP Chemistry Class at the Horizon Science Academy Cleveland High School (HSA). In this video around 300 mousetraps and 600 ping pong balls are used to demonstrate a fission reaction.

Nice to see young people using their minds to demonstrate what is a very serious nuclear reaction and shows that once the reaction begins not much is going to stop it.
