Know what to do if you’re caught up in a nuclear war?
We’re living in a nuclear age – nuclear power, nuclear weapons, nuclear families.
Are these good things, or are they bad?
In this talk, you’ll learn about the science of all things nuclear from an Oxford-educated scientist, Matthew Shribman.
From radioactive people to radioactive batteries, radioactive caves, and radioactive mould, the world is full of nuclear quirks. Matthew’s talk is a fascinating, accessible and relatable journey through all of these curiosities and more…
You’ll find out about nuclear power, what can go wrong, how it will be different in the future, and what we need to do with the nuclear waste to ensure that we’re safe. You’ll also learn about how to build your own star, how to look after it, and how to use it to generate enough energy to power the world.
Matthew will also explain what the greatest dangers are in a nuclear war, and how you might be able to survive them.
