Does physics need ethics? with black and white image of a building under construction.

Physics isn't often thought of as a field requiring ethical consideration. But from dramatic examples like the development of nuclear bombs to the more daily experience of physics being caught up in the production of consumer technology, ethical issues abound. In this discussion, we'll bring our own experiences and knowledge to the table to engage with whether and how we as physicists and scientists can take societal consequences into account in our research.
