In case you can’t read the small print, the sign reads “Site of the First Self-sustaining Controlled Nuclear Chain Reaction December 2, 1942.” I hadn’t realized that Enrico Fermi did his work for the Manhattan Project under the University of Chicago campus. Pretty nifty thing to stumble across on a Sunday afternoon walk, isn’t it?
