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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

Space: the next nuclear frontier. These are the celestial trailblazers of the nuclear industry. Their continuing mission is to explore the cosmos, seek out new nuclear science and technology applications, and boldly go where no one has gone before! What role can nuclear play as the world proceeds into the 21st century’s version of the space race? In addition to highlighting recent successes and progress in the burgeoning field, we will ask each panelist to share their own personal vision for nuclear in space and the challenges to achieving their vision. While the dream of space exploration may have previously been reserved for a select few, this panel will traverse the myriad of ways in which recent advances in space flight will enable the future of industrialization and human habitation in space.
