Understanding Nuclear Power and Radiation (Prof. Douglas Gobeille)
For today's episode I am joined again by Professor Gobeille to talk more things physics. This time we're covering nuclear energy. Is it safe? Is it dangerous? If a nuclear power plant were attacked with conventional weapons, would we be safe? Also, what is radiation? What is nuclear radiation? These terms tend to evoke fear from many and I think it's time we clear the air about what these things are and what they are not.
