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.

Eisenhower’s “Atoms for Peace” at 70
Seventy years ago to the day, President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his historic address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. (See December 2023 Nuclear News's “Leaders” column to read the reflections of Kathryn Huff, the Department of Energy’s assistant secretary for nuclear energy, on the speech’s anniversary.)

This workshop will demonstrate a new tool for use with the MCNP(TM) radiation transport code tool known as p-study. The p-study tool effectively does total Monte Carlo by perturbing all physical configuration values accessible from the input stack and allows these to be propagated into a comprehensive tally uncertainty in the end. Specifically this workshop will serve as a tutorial on a new Operational MCNP GUI (OMG) that allows users to generate and run p-study to conduct this total Monte Carlo on their input stacks. Attendees are recommended to have MCNP6.2 installed on their laptop if they want to download the GUI and follow along in the tutorial, otherwise attendees can just observe. The workshop will start with a brief statistics review sufficient to understand p-study and will assume attendees have at least some familiarity with the MCNP code.
