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 NETS 2022 conference will bring attention to the latest advancements in space nuclear systems and provide a forum for researchers, engineers and managers to discuss progress on current activities. The conference presents a unique opportunity for collaborative exchanges and data sharing among the US government, international community, industry and academia on space nuclear technologies and missions. This year’s NETS conference will highlight topics related to past missions and programs, new systems under development, external influences such as terrestrial nuclear energy, and mission pull related to the moon, Mars and beyond.
