Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

World-renowned Professor Frank Close explains how nuclear physics has progressed since the discovery of the electron at the end of the 19th century and shows how it brings the physics of the stars down to Earth and provides us with important applications in areas such as medicine. Close is professor of physics at Oxford University and a former head of the Theoretical Physics Division at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
