This lecture series examines nuclear energy from several perspectives. Jeff Wisoff discusses how researchers are developing a fusion-based system known as Laser Inertial Fusion Energy (LIFE) to address the problem of closing the gap between projected energy demand and the supply of sustainable, carbon-free, affordable energy. Richard Rhodes discusses the Manhattan Project, which transformed international politics, made world-scale war suicidal and continues to threaten and challenge relations between nations. Dwight Williams, Ph.d., P.E. considers how the role of nuclear science has changed with breakthroughs in the military, commercial power and health care domains. Marvin Fertel shares the benefit of 35 years of industry experience and discusses the future of nuclear energy.
