Although New Zealander Lord Rutherford was the first to split the atom, New Zealand is known around the world for its nuclear-free stance.

Rebecca Priestley, author of 'Mad on Radium', will reveal an alternative history of "nuclear New Zealand". 

Learn about the rich history of New Zealanders' engagement with the nuclear world, from the first users of radium in medicine to the plans for a nuclear power station on the Kaipara Harbour, and about the roots of New Zealand’s nuclear-free identity.

This is the third in the Hot Science – Cool Tales series held in conjunction with GNS Science.
