On impulse, I’ve booked to attend an all-day Sydney conference (I’m staying quite inner city) on nuclear. It’s the 13th annual conference of the Australian Nuclear Association. I’ve had little interest in the history of my home country vis a vis nuclear, primarily because it’s the only global continent without even a single power reactor. But something about Friday’s program fascinates. Speakers include folks (whom I have no knowledge of) from NuScale (now this is one company that beguiles) and China. And I must admit to wanting to hear about the tentacles of technical interest in nuclear us Aussies are displaying. Let’s hope I don’t find the physics/engineering/technical stuff, which I’m not good at, too boring.
