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.

Belgium’s nuclear phaseout begins
Unit 3 at the Doel nuclear power plant has become Belgium’s first reactor to be permanently shuttered, in keeping with that nation’s nuclear phaseout policy. The 1,006-MWe pressurized water reactor, which began commercial operation in October 1982, was removed from service last Friday at 9:31 p.m. (local time).
Belgium’s nuclear reactor fleet now consists of six operating units: Doel-1, -2, and -4 and Tihange-1, -2, and -3. Next on the retirement list is Tihange-2, scheduled to be shut down in February 2023.

The Krell Institute, a 501(c)(3) corporation, manages three Ph.D. fellowships for the U.S. Department of Energy that provide payment of full tuition and required fees at any U.S. accredited university, a generous yearly stipend, an annual professional development allowance which can be used for academic needs as well, a research practicum at a national laboratory and more.
The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship is for students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve problems in science, engineering, mathematics, and computer science. The DOE CSGF program is open to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents that are senior undergraduates or students in their first year of doctoral study and is renewable for up to four years.
The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship supports students pursuing their Ph.D. in areas of interest to stewardship science, such as properties of materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics, nuclear science, or high energy density physics. The fellowship is open to U.S. citizens who are senior undergraduates or students in their first or second year of graduate study and is renewable for up to four years.
The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship supports U.S. citizens in their second year or later pursuing a Ph.D. in fields of study that address complex science and engineering problems relevant to the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear stockpile. DOE NNSA LRGF fellows will work and study in residence at one or more of four approved DOE NNSA facilities for a minimum of two 12-week periods. The fellowship is renewable for up to four years.
