Department of Nuclear Engineering Launches a Medium Publication
The Department of Nuclear Engineering has launched a "magazine" on the article website Medium. The new magazine aims to educate the public on a variety of issues in the nuclear sphere and to address the many misonceptions surrounding nuclear research and energy.
The first article, written by department graduate student Milos Atz, "Understanding the Nuances of Nuclear Waste" deftly addresses the issue of nuclear waste in an even-handed and highly educational manner. The article, inspired by an episode of comedian John Oliver's show Last Week Tonight, also clarifies many points made by the show's host and differentiates between energy and defense nuclear wastes.
