A fateful day for nuclear waste policy: January 31, 1998
Next week will mark 25 years since January 31, 1998, a familiar date to most in the nuclear community, and revisited in today’s #ThrowbackThursday post with an article from the March 1998 issue of Nuclear News. “Those in the nuclear power industry are aware of the significance of the date January 31, 1998. ln the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, that date was set as the deadline for the U.S. government—more specifically, the Department of Energy—to begin taking possession of and responsibility for spent nuclear fuel from nuclear power plants nationwide” (NN, March 1998, p. 59).
If there are not enough students participating in the Program to cover all work assignments, students may be asked to cover additional assignments.
The maximum number of students that may participate in the Student Program for PHYSOR 2022 is 30.
Once the program is full, a waitlist will be established. In the event of a cancellation, those on the waitlist will be contacted in the order they were received.
If your schedule changes and you can no longer participate, please contact the SP Chair ASAP so new assignments can be made.
