Predictions: What lies ahead for nuclear in 2022
As we begin a new year, it is natural not only to look back (see page 24 for top news stories of 2021) but also to look forward. Nuclear News reached out to leaders in the nuclear community to get their predictions on what 2022 has in store, whether broadly or for their specific areas within the community. Although the responses below are wide-ranging and varied, one thing is made clear by all of the respondents: 2022 will see growth and opportunity. The future for nuclear is bright.

The Arthur Holly Compton Award in Education recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to education in the field of science and engineering germane to the interests of the Society. Nominees need not be ANS members and may be from any profession.
The award consists of an engraved plaque and a monetary award of $2,000 to the recipient and $2,000 to the recipient’s academic institution. It is presented at the ANS Annual Meeting.
This award was established by the Education and Training & Workforce Development Division in 1966 in recognition of the late Dr. Arthur Holly Compton, scientist, teacher, national leader, and Nobel Laureate. It was made possible through a $25,000 contribution by Mrs. Edward Mallinckrodt and George E. Mallinckrodt.
