“A nuclear rocket exploded at the military compound” or “a failure in a reactor close to our border” – such news are published by nationwide media outlets from time to time. Journalists compete in heating emotions, including mixing Chernobyl into the discussion. Where is the layman supposed to get information about the threat from? In other words: what is the emergency dosimetry service, why do we need the National Atomic Energy Agency and what does the radiation monitoring network look like in our country? How do we know how many radioactive isotopes are in the air, in water, in our food? Can we sleep peacefully? These questions will be answered on September 20 by Dariusz Aksamit during the SCIENCE CAFE. Irradiated lecture.
