Join us the third Thursday of each month for Science on Tap. These events are open to those of all ages. This month we highlight:

Creativity under Pressure or Why Disarming a Terrorist Nuke Is like Defending against Aliens in Space

For this talk, Barry Charles, with the Lab's Global Security organization, will recreate the TEDxLANL talk he gave earlier this year.

Disarming an improvised nuclear weapon is a challenge the world has never faced. Yet nuclear emergency responders are required to train for, be prepared for, and be 100 percent successful in such a situation. Will we need a new way of solving problems to help us prepare for when the scientific method no longer applies?
