Nuclear Science Quizzes & Trivia

When we hear Nuclear Science, most of us probably have a tendency to think first of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. But nuclear science is about much more than that, with application in fields that have helped man in a huge measure. Nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging, radiocarbon dating, all of these could not have been possible without the existence of nuclear science. So to honor this noble branch of science we created this trivia with all sorts of questions about it.

Here are a few samples questions: What was the year radioactivity was discovered? Who is the famous personality considered by many to be the father of nuclear physics? What is the name of the device that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high speeds? Get all of the answers right and become one of the great nuclear scientists.
