The earthquake and subsequent tsunami that caused three reactor meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi on March 11, 2011, forever changed the nuclear power industry in Japan and worldwide. We invite you to a special discussion that revisits Fukushima on the eve of the 10-year anniversary.
A distinguished panel will discuss the lessons we’ve learned, the decontamination and decommissioning approach, and future challenges. The panel, which features several principal members of the ANS Special Committee on Fukushima, will also examine what the committee got right and what it got wrong in the Fukushima Daiichi report.
