In Unit 9, Sim 2, Uranium Trial 2: The products of the fission reaction don't add up to what they should. Both products have 55 protons/82 neutrons/mass 137 but only one of them should and then the other should be smaller. It seems like it's a programming issue where it's just displaying the wrong thing for this trial because all the other trials display 2 different fission products.

These values were also wrong in the old JAVA sims, so they made their way over without being double checked it seems. I've fixed it so that the fission products are Cs-137 and Rb-96 (this assumes 3 neutrons are produced to be consistent with the visualization).
