Pinky’s science checks out! The migration area of a medium is one-sixth the mean square distance that a neutron travels from its birth in fission until its absorption. The medium involved here is apparently a neutron moderator, which reduces the speed of fast neutrons produced by nuclear fission, thereby turning them into thermal neutrons capable of sustaining a nuclear chain reaction involving uranium-235.
