Tweets from Physics and Engineering

The Nuclear Physics Group was recently interviewed by STFC to talk about translating research into the real world. Here we have Dr Paschalis talking about the huge success he, Prof Jenkins, and Dr Joshi had partnering with industry to create handheld gamma ray detectors!

Look at this amazing stall of @PhysicsatYork at York Pride where you get free glasses that make you see rainbows (refraction they say, or magic) and get shown a metal rock which is older than the Earth! Mind blown! 🌈🏳️‍🌈😎
