The Casual Pint is known for its craft beer, but soon it'll branch out into science. The beer market plans to host the inaugural Pint of Science: The Half-Life Chronicles.

Local physicists Tom Hansen and Samantha Hedrick will discuss radiation, where it comes from, and the risks it poses to people after exposure.

Hedrick will also discuss the differences between proton therapy and conventional therapy as forms of treatment.

The event is happening Monday, January 11 at 6:00 p.m. at 421 Union Avenue in Knoxville.
