On 11th March an unprecedented earthquake and subsequent tsunami crippled a six reactor site in NE Japan at Fukushima. Tony Roulstone from the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering will attempt to explain what happened during the period of two weeks when the world watched as the operators grappled with a different problem each day which damaged at least four of reactors and has impacted the renaissance in nuclear energy around the world. Though details are sketchy, Tony Roulstone will attempt to demystify the accident.
