Lindop Building, College Lane Campus, Hatfield

Speakers: Chris Gallagher

The idea of radiation and nuclear power is very much out of fashion at the moment, but it wasn't always that way.

During the 1950s and 60s the public were more accepting of the idea of atomic power and dreamed up everything from atomic powered cars to
energy too cheap to meter.

Chris’s talk will track the rise of this golden age of the atom and its eventual fall, and will discuss if Nuclear power is something we should be really worried about.

Chris graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2006 with an honours degree in Physics and for the last 5 years has worked in the Nuclear Industry in Safety and Science based roles.
