Nuclear Power: Promise and Peril
Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7:00 PM
Dominican University Priory Campus, Room #263 7200 W. Division St., River Forest, IL 60305 (see map)
William George, professor of theology at Dominican University, and Thomas George, engineer and developer of software used by the nuclear power industry, will share the podium to address the questions: Can nuclear power be a morally and technically responsible path into the future? Or is it better seen as a Promethean quest to steal fire from the gods and to venture where human beings ought not to go? In this presentation and discussion, two brothers--an engineer who uses mathematics to ensure nuclear safety and a moral theologian who writes on obligations to future generations--explore both the promises and the perils of nuclear power.
Admission is free.
