CP-1 at 80: The legacy of CP-1—and the scientist who created its neutron activity detector
Nuclear Newswire is back with the final #ThrowbackThursday post honoring the 80th anniversary of Chicago Pile-1 with offerings from past issues of Nuclear News. On November 17, we took a look at the lead-up to the first controlled nuclear chain reaction and on December 1, the events of December 2, 1942, the day a self-sustaining nuclear fission reaction was created and controlled inside a pile of graphite and uranium assembled on a squash court at the University of Chicago’s Stagg Field.
The Diversity and Inclusion in ANS Committee designates nearly $10,000 of NEED funds each year to provide travel assistance to ANS student members who identify with underrepresented and historically excluded groups.
Here are just a few stories from student members we were able to help in the past couple of years:

administration, direct exposure to the current developments within the nuclear community is invaluable for informing my research on the current state of curriculum development in nuclear programs — ensuring that learning outcomes are applicable and consistent — and providing a broader network for collaboration and engagement. Dedicated to a life in academia, my aspiration of achieving a professorship position within the field is firmly established and resolute, now more than ever before. These experiences continue to embolden me to not let my disability define my capabilities or future potential — in keeping with my continuous growth mindset, personal initiative, and leadership mentality.
By awarding me the DIA Travel Grant, I was better able to concentrate on the professional development aspects of the conference and to endeavor to become a more active member of the nuclear community. Thank you again for investing in my future through the continued support. If there are any future opportunities to get involved or contribute to ANS in a greater capacity, please be sure to keep me in mind — it would be absolute pleasure for me to further support our wonderful society and represent the visual impairment community!
