In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, Sophie Zienkiewicz and Henry Preston of the Nuclear Institute’s Young Generation Network argue the case for including nuclear energy in the UK’s net-zero-carbon strategy.

Physics World’s Laura Hiscott and Tami Freeman are also on hand to talk about careers for physicists in the green economy and an emerging cancer treatment called proton arc therapy.
