My conference highlight – Einstein would have been proud of me

photo by bob franklin(Or would he? Discuss)

For my own record, I have made a note below of all the meetings/debates I attended and discussions I had at conference.

The highlight from all of these was the lady from Hunterston B Nuclear power station, on the EDF stand, explaining to me, with the use of moving models, how nuclear power is produced. It really is quite daft that I have never got myself educated on this subject before. The lady was perfectly charming and very patient. The whole thing was fascinating. Einstein would have been proud of me.
