ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.

Rayleigh-Taylor instability of a laser accelerated ablative surface of a thin target shell with an incompressible fluid saturated porous lining is investigated using linear stability analysis. A simple theory based on replacing the no-slip effect with the Saffman slip condition is proposed. It is shown that the growth rate is greatly reduced over the value it would have if the shell is bounded by an impermeable boundary. This is useful in the very effective extraction of inertial fusion energy.
