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 2018 International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP 2018) illustrates the recent advances in design, thermal hydraulics, reactor physics, materials, operation and maintenance, safety, licensing and construction of nuclear power plants.
Approximately 150 peer-reviewed, full-length papers and two plenary sessions were featured at ICAPP 2018. Plenary sessions and some technical sessions discussed economic challenges related to the construction of new plants. Relevant technologies and advances in construction and operation of plants to help reduce this cost will be discussed. A variety of technical sessions were dedicated to the development of new technologies and to long-term sustainability challenges emphasized through many alternative designs, including innovative advanced reactor concepts, fuel cycle and waste management strategies, and dedicated nonelectrical systems.
