271 - The Demon Core
When Japan surrendered in 1945, World War II was brought to a close and the United States' plans for a third atomic bomb drop were abandoned. The plutonium core at the centre of the bomb was shipped to New Mexico for further experiments. Despite avoiding use in war, this plutonium core was still intent on killing. Being at the centre of the first two criticality accidents in history, it was dubbed "The Demon Core."
