Inaugural Lecture: Adventures in Atomic Energy with Robots and Radiation

Inaugural Lecture: Professor Tom Scott

Wednesday 7th March

In this exciting meander through a world of invisible hazards we will examine the sources of radioactivity in the world around us, visit historic characters who mined radioactive rocks in Cornwall and adventure into the Fukushima Fallout zone with the help of robots.

This inaugural lecture will examine the global opportunities and challenges presented by atomic energy, assisted by superheroes and introducing a never-ending battery made from radioactive waste trapped inside a diamond.

Tom Scott is Professor in Materials, Director of the Interface Analysis Centre and Co-Director of the South West Nuclear Hub.
