I've already tired of the computing scene, I would like to get some deeper education in nuclear physics just for the sake of learning.

Anyone know what the price of the credential is going to be?

Richard DeMillo says he'd take a certificate as a qualification for a job in industry, that's nice, I wonder how many other would.
