Join us as we explore how nuclear fusion powers our sun (and all of the stars), seeds the Universe with all of its elements, and how nuclear fission in the Earth’s core heats our planet, allowing our magnetic field to protect all of life on Earth.
From tiny atoms to subatomic particles we will learn the difference between Nuclear Fusion and Nuclear Fission and learn why it matters.
We will see how electromagnetism is used to generate electricity, and we will compare Wind, Solar, Coal, Hydro, Gas and Nuclear technologies to assess their true “greenness”, and see how new breakthroughs could make the dream of unlimited clean energy a reality in our lifetime.
If you are Anti-nuclear please come and see if you feel the same way when you leave.
The speaker, Steve Desofi, was a programmer at the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor facility with a background in engineering and physics.
