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.

Relearning how to build nuclear in the U.K.
The effort to build the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant in Somerset, England, has been “prodigious, lengthy, and increasingly costly.” So says London-based energy, business, and environment writer Stanley Reed in his recent New York Times article, “Why Britain Is Struggling with Nuclear Power.”

With a growing focus on environmental justice, the Biden Administration has worked on a range of issues related to the environment and social equity that impact the nuclear and broader energy industry. In 2021, the Administration shared the Justice 40 initiative, part of an Executive Order requiring 40% of the benefit of federal spending on climate and energy to go to disadvantaged communities. This panel discussion will bring together government, academic and industry experts to explore the Justice 40 initiative, its purpose and implementation, and opportunities for the nuclear sector to align with this initiative and broader environmental justice efforts.
