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.
The division provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

Survey: Strong overall support in U.S. for nuclear, but with concerns
Results of the American Climate Perspectives Survey 2022 conducted by the climate-focused organization ecoAmerica suggest that the overall national support for research into advanced nuclear energy and for nuclear energy in general are continuing five-year upward trends. However, according to the survey, fewer than half of women responding to the survey support nuclear power. In addition, public concerns about nuclear-related waste disposal, health and safety, and weaponization remain high.
2022 ANS Annual Meeting
Dr. Dan Rasky is a NASA Senior Scientist and the current Chief of the Space Portal Office he co-founded in 2005. From 2005-2006, Dan was a core member of the NASA HQ Team that established the NASA Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program. He was awarded the Exceptional Achievement medal for promotion of partnerships with the emerging and non-traditional space industry in 2006. In 2007, President George W. Bush conferred on Dr. Rasky the rank of Meritorious Senior Professional for sustained superior accomplishment in public service. Dan was also awarded NASA’s most distinguished recognition for innovators or the “Inventor of the Year” award in 2007 and the “Government Invention of the Year” award in 2009. His inventions included the Thermal Protections Systems that enabled the Stardust comet sample return mission currently on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. In 2008-2009, Dan worked with SpaceX to develop the thermal protection systems for their Dragon capsule.
Formerly Chief for the Thermal Protections Materials and Systems Branch at NASA Ames, Dan is an internationally recognized expert for space thermal protection and entry systems. He was selected for a series of interviews for his “…breakthrough innovations and answers to complex challenges” viewable on NASA’s official Knowledge@NASA YouTube Channel. Prior to NASA, Dan worked for a small aerospace company, Acurex, conducting R & D contracting work for the Air Force.
