Hello! I was just wondering what this community is aware of in the world of modern nuclear physics. To be specific, for my assignment I am asked to research a topic or issue that is related to nuclear physics (and has relations to our daily lives). Some examples provided are: The use of radiation for the treatment of foods is a safe way to extend the shelf life of perishable foods and address an impending crisis in food shortages in the world today. The application of nuclear medical technology is an important adjunct to diagnostic medicine and provides an effective means for the monitoring and treatment of disease (we were shown an example of a student who wrote about MRI machines). As a source of energy, nuclear energy provides a safer alternative that current fossil fuel technology for the production of energy for large-scale consumption. These examples are great, but since nearly everybody in the year level will be researching these topics, I feel inclined to look into something else. If you have any ideas or know of issues/upcoming issues that are worth researching, please tell! Thanks, Trontor.
