Rutherford Lecture Theatre 1, University of Kent, Canterbury. CT2 7NZ

Speakers: Professor Wade Allison

Ever since the cold war, with its threat of nuclear holocaust, radiation has been held in awe.
But very few, if any, die in nuclear accidents, and both the scientific basis of radiation safety and popular perceptions need complete re-examination.
Professor Allison is a nuclear and medical physicist. He is the author of Radiation and Reason: the impact of science on a culture of fear.
