Speakers: Steve Wilson

Alexander Litvinenko was fatally poisoned in a central London hotel bar. From this crime scene a radioactive trail was subsequently traced across London and ultimately into Russia.

This talk will describe how a chemical isotope, discovered by Marie Curie, but still only available from a nuclear reactor was used to carry out a potential perfect crime. We will explain the broad science of radioactivity, whilst describing crime scenes and methods of scientific measurement, and identifying key involvement of nuclear experts.

Talk begins at 7:00pm, refreshments from 6:30pm.
