The Cancer Bomb (Online Exhibit)
The Cancer Bomb exhibit project—Cobalt-60 at 60—celebrated the 60-year legacy of the cobalt-60 cancer therapy technology. The project was a partnership of the Saskatoon Western Development Museum and USask Research Profile and Impact, with sponsorship from Nutrien (formerly Potash Corp).
Thanks to a history of excellence in medical physics and accelerator technology at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan has long been a leader in cancer research and treatment.
From planting gold radon seeds, to the first radon plant in Western Canada, to the revolutionary Cobalt-60 cancer bomb, the legacy of innovation continues to today.
