We look forward to hosting NETS in May 2023. The venue for this conference is on the west bank of the Snake River, which is one of America's great river systems. For those unfamiliar with Idaho Falls, it is a city of ~60,000 in eastern Idaho. This city has an airport serviced by Delta, American, United and Alaskan with approximately 10-12 flights daily to Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver, Dallas and Phoenix. NETS 2023 will have a particular focus in a few different areas. One plenary session will be devoted to a historical look at the missions that were nuclear-enabled such as Voyager, New Horizons, Mars 2020, and with an eye towards the future, Dragon Fly. Another plenary session will focus on the future with a closer look at nuclear reactors such as the Advanced Test Reactor and the Transient Test Reactor at the Idaho National Laboratory and the reactor test bed being established for testing small modular and micro-reactors in the next few years. For those who wish to come early or stay an extra day or two to explore nature, two of the greatest national parks (Yellowstone NP and Grand Teton NP) are within a 2-hour drive and may be tempting. Come and experience Idaho Falls with exciting NETS 2023 involvement!
