ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

The next generation of nuclear.
The American Nuclear Society exists to aid the next generation in their pursuit of advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies for the benefit of mankind. ANS is committed to providing students with the knowledge, tools, and opportunities to achieve success in or out of the nuclear field. ANS Student Sections provide such a means and a student section may be established in any school that confers academic degrees and offers a curriculum in nuclear science and technology.
Student members play active roles in all facets of the ANS and students and their Sections are represented at the national level by the Student Director and the Student Sections Committee. Since 1998, the ANS Board of Directors has designated one seat for a student member and elections are held to fill this two-year position. If you have any suggestions or comments regarding ANS student affairs, you can send them to:
