Okey the story goes like this:
I study informationtechnology at a Polytech, I might one day be an engineer.
I have very weird things I have to study and really interesting things I can study.
One of the most weirdest thing I have to study is nuclear physics...
For the last 4 years I have wondered this with my fellow engineerstudents and no one seems to know why.
I would understand the nuclear physics if I was a nuclearplant builder or something, but I'm only learning computer stuff.
oh well life is really weird, and E=mc^2 ...
My brother in law and the guy my other sister lives with are both engineers. But neither of them do any nuclear physics in their daily work either. I do have a friend who's a radio astronomer for JPL. I could see how he needs to know that stuff. Although most of the time he's just trying to figure out how they can still do any research at all with the government cutting their budgets again and again. Oh well, c'est la vie. When you figure that out, you can tell me why I had to study some of the things I did in college. Good luck.
