TVA and Kairos partner on demonstration reactor
The Tennessee Valley Authority and nuclear technology and engineering company Kairos Power this morning announced plans to collaborate on the deployment of the latter’s low-power demonstration reactor, dubbed Hermes, at the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP) in Oak Ridge, Tenn. TVA will provide engineering, operations, and licensing support to help Kairos with deployment, according to the announcement.
The John R. LaMarsh Memorial Scholarship was established in December 1981 for undergraduate students studying in the discipline of nuclear science and technology.
John R. Lamarsh was a notable and highly respected member of the academic community in nuclear engineering. The scholarship was named for John because of his influence on nuclear engineering education.
John Lamarsh was a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Cornell University and was the recipient of the Arthur Holly Compton Award in Education in 1980. He was an individual who dedicated his life to enhancing the field of nuclear engineering education. John was the department chair of nuclear engineering at New York University. He wrote numerous texts that were widely used in the academic world, including “Nuclear Reactor Theory” (1966), and “Introduction to Nuclear Engineering” (1975).
