I have had a busy week trying to time share between a day job and at least some attendance and coverage of the American Nuclear Society Winter Meeting. While searching for other views of the event that I might have missed earlier in the week, I found the below segment titled Nuclear Industry Holds Winter Meeting on Future on Clean Skies News.
One thing that might stick in the craw of long time members of the ANS is the incorrect characterization of the meeting as an “industry” gathering. The American Nuclear Society is a technical society made up of people from academia, industry and national laboratories. It has members who are interested in nuclear medicine, isotope measuring devices, and particle physics. Though people with an interest in nuclear power play a role in the society, it is NOT an industry group.
