Nature Created a Nuclear Reactor on Earth 1.7 Billion Years Ago 

The Oklo fission reactors are the only known examples of a natural nuclear reactor here on Earth … For approximately 30 minutes, the reactor would go critical, with fission proceeding until the water boils away. Over the next ~150 minutes, there would be a cooldown period, after which water would flood the mineral ore again and fission would restart.
