Zaporizhzhia the focus of Grossi interview
The ongoing, tense situation surrounding the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine was the subject of a recent interview with International Atomic Energy Agency director general Rafael Mariano Grossi when he appeared on CBS's 60 Minutes program.
The Zaporizhzhia facility is in an area of Ukraine that became occupied by Russian forces in late February 2022. Though Ukrainian staff remain at the now mostly idle plant, artillery shells have repeatedly landed at and near the plant over the past several months, with Ukrainian officials—along with many Western media outlets—blaming Russia, while Russian officials and media blame Ukraine.
Action from the IAEA: Following months of negotiations with both sides, inspectors from the IAEA, led by Grossi, finally visited the site in late August and early September, and the agency has been monitoring the situation since then with an observation mission at the site. In the interview, which aired on November 20, Grossi did not attribute blame for the shelling to either side.
American Nuclear Society meetings and conferences are the best way to keep current with the ever changing fields of nuclear science and technology.
In addition to two national meetings per year, ANS sponsors many topical meetings which concentrate on a particular technical area. Many of these meetings are planned many years in advance and are listed here. To have a meeting listed here, it must be approved by the National Program Committee of the American Nuclear Society for inclusion on the ANS Calendar.
For more than 65 years, ANS has provided a forum for advancing the state of applied nuclear science and technology. We remain committed to serving the needs of the nuclear professional community during these unprecedented times. Our in-person and hybrid meetings enable the robust technical exchange of an ANS meeting—papers, presentations, posters, and plenaries, etc.—while ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved during the COVID-19 pandemic.
