Fusion, a boy wonder and free cookies — yup, time for TED Talks on Tuesdays

If you haven’t made it to one of the TED Talks on Tuesdays at Chapman University, you’re missing out on some fun and dynamic conversations. But you’re in luck — the next one is Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 11:45 a.m. in Argyros Forum 209C. The featured TED Talk will be Taylor Wilson: My Radical Plan for Small Nuclear Fission Reactors, a talk first presented by Taylor who at the age of 14 wowed the world when he became the youngest person in history to produce fusion.

The faculty response and discussion will be led by Ali Nayeri, Ph.D., assistant professor in the School of Computational Sciences in the Schmid College of Science and Technology.

The lunchtime “TED Talks on Tuesdays” are sponsored by TEDxChapmanU and a variety of departments and colleges on campus.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunches. Beverages and cookies will be provided.

  • Great talk. And even more impressive is that Taylor is able to look past the fame of solving the fusion problem and focus on making fission, an old process, accessible and safe for underdeveloped countries. Power for all. He took a more humanitarian look at the problem and gave a very impressive solution. We need more Taylor Wilsons in the world.
