Titans Of Nuclear | Interviewing World Experts on Nuclear Energy

Jul 27, 2018

In this episode, we discuss...

  • Michael's interest in particle physics and his work as a high energy physicist.  

  • The difference between antimatter and antiprotons.  

  • Annihilation and why the occurrence of antimatter collisions are more common than you think. 

  • Constituents of a normal matter atom.  

  • Measuring the gravitational effect between matter and antimatter.  

  • The Grand Unification Theory and understanding gravity.  

  • Why understanding high energy physics is crucial to diagnosing and treating cancer and tumors.  

  • How high energy physics has led to the commercialization of technology.  

  • The catch of using gamma therapy to treat tumors and what must be done instead.  

  • Using accelerators to drive the production of thermal neutrons.  

  • Ripping electrons off of normal atoms and how targeted annihilation can kill surrounding cells.  

  • Cost-drivers of the current system.  

  • Neutrinos and the DUNE Experiment.
