ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

Penn State wants a Westinghouse eVinci microreactor on campus
Penn State University has announced plans to explore siting a Westinghouse Electric Company eVinci microreactor on its State College campus in central Pennsylvania. Under a memorandum of understanding to perform research and development work that could advance the future commercial deployment of eVinci, a team of researchers in Penn State’s Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering also plans to explore how eVinci could displace some fossil-fueled energy sources on campus.

The release of the President’s FY 2023 Budget offers an opportunity for better understanding the landscape of nuclear energy priorities with the Department of Energy (DOE). Activities within the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy support future reactor deployments, development of advanced reactor fuels, waste reduction, and management research, and many other areas that are critical for the longevity of existing, as well as for future, nuclear technologies. Join ANS as representatives from the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy offer perspectives on what the proposed funding means for the future of many important nuclear energy programs and initiatives.
