Department Colloquium | The Increasing Peril From Nuclear Arms: And How Physicists Can Help Reduce the Threat

Prof. Stewart Prager (APS, Physicists Coalition for Nuclear Threat Reduction Astrophysical Sciences (Princeton University))
Wednesday, October 14, 2020
4:00-5:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Department Colloquium Link:

With geopolitical and technological changes mostly driven by the nuclear weapons states, we are slipping towards a new arms race and deterioration of the multi-decade arms control regime. This talk will describe the current critical situation, feasible steps to reduce the nuclear threat, and a new project sponsored by the American Physical Society to engage physical scientists in advocacy for nuclear threat reduction.

The colloquium will be followed by a short meeting for those interested in learning about the APS Physicists Coalition for Threat Reduction.
