Highlights of the 2013 Winter Meeting, Celebrating 75 Years of Nuclear Fission

Dinner – Celebrating 75 Years of Nuclear Fission

Our Monday evening dinner will be an occasion to toast the 75 Years of Nuclear Fission. The dinner celebration will feature remarks from Pulitzer Prize winning author Richard Rhodes. The black-tie optional ticketed evening event will take place at the Marriott Wardman Park in the Thurgood Marshall Ballroom, a short walk from the Omni Shoreham. You will start the evening with drinks and hor d'oeuvres, entertainment, and a wonderful three-course dinner. (Tickets still available.)

The Avenue of History

While walking the expo floor, we encourage you to take some time to reflect on the impact that the discovery of nuclear fission has had. Poster presentations will be available that highlight crucial steps in the discovery as well as key individuals. Participants in "The Avenue of History" include:

75 Years of Nuclear Fission (a reprint of "50 Years of Nuclear Fission")

Although many of the pioneers who were able to highlight and contribute to the 1989 Conference celebrating the 50 years of nuclear fission have passed away, we celebrate their words and contributions at this gathering. Available for purchase is the second printing "75 Years of Nuclear Fission (a reprint of '50 Years of Nuclear Fission')." Industry pioneers such as Edoardo Amaldi, Georgy Flerov, Siegfried Fluegge, Bertrand Goldschmidt, Rudolf Peirels, Pavle Savić, Glenn Seaborg, Emilio Segre, Edward Teller, John Wheeler, and Walter Zinn, will have their work resonate with us again in this special reprint edition.
