Guest Speaker for Physics: Associate Professor Jamie Quinton

The Year 12 Physics students were lucky enough to have Jamie Quinto present on 10 October on Nuclear Stability.
His insightful and well presented lecture described the difference between nuclear fission and nuclear fusion, as well outlining the advantages and disadvantages of both.
He used excellent visual models to describe the science, including if a hydrogen atom was scaled up to be the size of Australia then the nucleus would be one quarter of the size of Uluru.
