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.
Nuclear Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

The power to save the world … from asteroids
A research collaboration between Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) has investigated how the neutron energy generated by the detonation of a nuclear device could affect the path and speed of an asteroid on a collision course with Earth by melting and vaporizing a portion of the asteroid. The research, which compared the deflection caused by two different neutron energies—14.1 MeV and 1 MeV, representing fusion and fission neutrons, respectively—is described in an article published by LLNL on April 8.

This Education in Thermal Hydraulics Panel is the second in a series of panels focused on understanding and improving existing practices within thermal hydraulics related education, best practices, and tactical methods that may be feasible to deploy as a nuclear community to serve as resources for all ANS members. The goal of this second educational in thermal hydraulics panel is to reflect on the outcomes of the first which resulted in the understanding that a suite of resources should be developed for the community. The panel will also involve discussions on progress made on these efforts while providing discussion and dialogue through examples of success.
