March 11 marks the one-year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the ensuing nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi. Since the catastrophe, Germany has announced plans to move away from nuclear power. What does that mean for the nuclear industry as a whole? Cartan-Hansen and Grossenbacher will talk about what scientists have learned from the disaster and the possible ramifications.
There is no call-in segment on the repeat Sunday, March 4, at 10:30/9:30 a.m. MT/PT.
