This is The American Nuclear Society's report on Nine Grand Challenges by 2030. Hopefully, they will make a lot of progress. The progress so far has been insufficient to maintain a healthy nuclear industry.
The American Nuclear Society has announced that it will focus on Nine Grand Challenges by 2030. It is time that they commit to greater focus on these broad challenges and resolve them. Major expansion of nuclear power desperately needs them resolved.
Professor Thormod Henriksen and his team of scientists at the University of Oslo Physics Department in Norway have given the public free access to a tremendous book: "Radiation and Health." We can not express enough gratitude. This is rare and unusual in academia in other countries, where textbooks routinely cost hundreds of dollars per semester. Dr. Henriksen's book is full of interesting and easy to understand information about radiation, radioactivity, artificial radioactive isotopes and nuclear medicine.
Leslie Corrice, the author of The Hiroshima Syndrome website, first career of 21 years (in order) nuclear power plant operator, environmental monitoring technician, health physics design engineer, public relations spokesperson, public education coordinator and emergency planner. His second career was teaching science and math on the high school level. Now, he dedicates himself to The Hiroshima Syndrome website. After the Fukushima accident, his website was one of the most widely read about understanding the accident. He is dedicated to teaching people around the world about the benefits of nuclear energy, radioisotopes and low-dose radiation
