A video about ETS Walton

A new video from Sixty Symbols.

This one is from our trip to Dublin back in July (yes, I've had a backlog).

In this video Professor Phil Moriarty discussed Ireland's only Nobel Prize winning scientist - Ernest Walton.

We also discussed Walton with his former colleague at Trinity College, Iggy McGovern.

Iggy is a physicist (and happened to be the external supervisor for Phil's PhD).

But Iggy's also an accomplished poet.

In our video Iggy shared his poem "Hammer and Spark", dedicated to Walton.

Iggy also explained the nicknames given to Walton by his colleagues - "ETS" and "The Wee Prof".

Here's the video:
