One of the most memorable lectures I have attended was a talk by 93-year-old Joseph Rotblat, entitled “Preservation of Life in a Nuclear Age”. Professor Rotblat was a Polish-born British physicist who had worked on nuclear fission and the Manhattan Project. He was the only scientist to quit the project on moral grounds, once it was clear that Nazi Germany was not a nuclear threat. He had subsequently campaigned for nuclear disarmament and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995 together with the Pugwash Conferences.
