An interview on nuclear with a local student

I recently did an interview with a local high school student (name withheld for privacy), and I wanted to share my responses both in that there's several good questions, and more importantly how outreach efforts like this are essential for nuclear professionals. I've tried to keep my answers at a relatively accessible level, so if it seems like I am perhaps glossing over some of the finer technical details, it's because my goal here was to make my response accessible to as wide of an audience as possible.
(On a side note: I apologize for the recent lull in postings - in particular, I've been bogged down trying to complete my PhD dissertation, with a defense date in approximately three weeks. As you can likely surmise, it's been a little busy here. More updates to come soon.)
