Last May, in the wake of the Fukushima crisis, we invited Professor John McInerney, from the UCC Physics Department, to speak to us about nuclear radiation.
The video is now online in full on our YouTube channel. It’s well worth watching. In his talk, Professor McInerney describes what radiation is, and recounts the biggest stories related to nuclear power generation. Later he talks about the future of nuclear power and what it might mean for Ireland.
