Stars and the Atomic Age
Dr. Ian Roederer
Carnegie Fellow,
Carnegie Observatories

 

The course of human history may have unfolded quite differently if not for a small impurity in one of the rarest elements on Earth. Dr. Roederer will revisit the story of how stardust from ancient supernovae became the key ingredient in the nuclear arms race.

    Thank you all for attending this event. It was my honor and pleasure meeting such intellectual minds. Perhaps next time we can all meet in a social event where we can discuss lighter subjects and not uranium 235/238... =)

      I should have planned and done better. Attending 2 lectures consecutively during a weekday made it difficult to also plan a dinner event. May be next time.
