Dalton Cumbrian Facility
Professor Barry Lennox discusses the incredible work of the RAIN Hub team and the robots cleaning up nuclear sites at Dounreay and Fukushima.
In this episode of The Buzz we go nuclear, asking Drs Aneeqa Khan and Laura Leay whether nuclear power could be the answer to our future energy needs.
Francis Livens, Director of the Dalton Nuclear Institute, tells us about Manchester’s new Radioactive Waste Management Research Support Office.
How can you predict the future 100 or 1,000 years from now? It’s a question Sellafield researchers and scientists have to ask. Now, a new exhibition will help to visualise the unknown future of the nuclear power plant.
To mark the United Nations’ International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we meet some of the women from FSE making their mark in science and technology.
The University of Manchester has been awarded funds by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) organisation that will support three brand new Centres for Doctoral Training.
I work in a place where robots roam the hallways, chemists explore radioactive materials and physicists work with the world’s most powerful dual-beam particle accelerator. Located between the Irish Sea and the beautiful Lake District National Park, the Dalton Cumbrian Facility is a satellite site for the University of Manchester’s Dalton Nuclear Institute. It is […]
Did you know that Manchester is the birthplace of modern nuclear physics? It was created right here by Ernest Rutherford and his colleagues, and this year marks a century since Rutherford initiated the first artificial nuclear reaction. And that wasn’t the end of the team’s breakthroughs. Between 1914 and 1919, Rutherford led many experiments in […]
As the Cold War fades into history, fewer and fewer people remember what life was like lived under the ever-present threat of nuclear warfare. Indeed, even during the Cold War years, the reality of nuclear weapons was downplayed. Atmospheric testing was banned in 1963, driving tests underground – out of sight and out of mind […]
When it comes to the nuclear power industry, you’ll always be playing the long game. So, when you’re considering its future, you need to think long-term. And one topic occupying the minds of people in the nuclear power industry right now is the future of its power source. Uranium, a silver-grey coloured heavy metal that […]
