The 11th installment of the ANS Young Members Group Spotlight on National Labs will feature the Nevada National Security Site. The webinar, moderated by ANS YMG member Kelsey Amundson, will be held this Thursday, August 26, noon - 1:30 pm EDT. The event is free and open to all, so please register now.
What is the NNSS? The NNSS is unique from other Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration sites and is larger in size than the state of Rhode Island. The remote site offers year-round nuclear and radiological experiments and operations in secure ground, air, and underground configurations. Its support is instrumental in the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear deterrent, providing nuclear and radiological emergency response capabilities and training; contributing to key nonproliferation and arms control initiatives; executing national-level experiments in support of the national laboratories; working with national security customers and other federal agencies on important national security activities; and providing long-term environmental stewardship of the NNSS’s Cold War legacy.
