The power to save the world … from asteroids
A research collaboration between Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) has investigated how the neutron energy generated by the detonation of a nuclear device could affect the path and speed of an asteroid on a collision course with Earth by melting and vaporizing a portion of the asteroid. The research, which compared the deflection caused by two different neutron energies—14.1 MeV and 1 MeV, representing fusion and fission neutrons, respectively—is described in an article published by LLNL on April 8.

This roundtable discussion will feature representatives from utilities awarded funding through DOE’s Light Water Reactor Sustainability Program to demonstrate hydrogen production at existing LWR plants in Ohio, Arizona, and Minnesota. The speakers will provide their perspectives on the first-of-a-kind projects that represent a significant opportunity to improve the long-term economic competitiveness of the current LWR fleet by providing experience and insights on the production of clean hydrogen in addition to electricity at operating nuclear power plants.
