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.

The blossoming of cooperation between the U.S. and Canada
The United States and Canadian nuclear industries used to be an example of how two independent teams of engineers facing an identical problem—making electricity from uranium—could come up with completely different answers. In the 1950s, Canada began designing a reactor with tubes, heavy water, and natural uranium, while in the U.S. it was big pots of light water and enriched uranium.
But 80 years later, there is a remarkable convergence. The North American push for a new generation of nuclear reactors, mostly small modular reactors (SMRs), is becoming binational, with U.S. and Canadian companies seeking markets and regulatory certification on both sides of the border and in many cases sourcing key components in the other country.

Want to learn how to roast your own coffee beans or brew your own beer? Have questions on the on how to bake the best cold brew? Or maybe learn the difference between an ale and lager?
Come join us at the first ever "Brewers and Roasters" Happy Hour being hosted by the ANS 2021 Student conference!
We have serval home brewers (including, Harsh Desai, Mark DeHart, and Art Wharton) and local coffee roasters (such as, Global Village and Pine Roast Coffee in Raleigh) to talk about the details of the brewing and roasting process. Bring your favorite beverage and learn more about these hobbies while catching up with your peers on Friday night.
Feel free to send questions for our panelists in advance to Ishita Trivedi.
