Make it all treats and no tricks this Halloween, using candy to illustrate and reinforce the incredible energy density of nuclear. My favorite is the little dumdum lollipop (activity overview and fact sheet are posted in the U.S. WIN Outreach Library.) What's yours?

Are you a student in the process of finishing your PhD in the field of #nuclear #engineering or have you just recently defended your thesis? The ANS Young Member Group is organizing a “Pitch your PhD” competition at the Winter #ANSmeeting on Nov 18 in the afternoon. You will have 3 minutes to present your thesis & captivate an audience of peers who will vote for the best pitches. The winners will receive $500 (1st place), $250 (2nd place) awards given out during the conference. The winner will also be invited to publish their pitch in ANS News and to present an ANS webinar hosted by the Generation IV International Forum (GIF). To register to participate in this competition, you just need to contact Nicolas Stauff ([email protected]) BEFORE October 30 w/your name, university, PhD subject, & defense date. Registering to this event does not preclude participation as a speaker/poster at the Annual Meeting. We are looking forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.

NASA to test prototype Kilopower reactor

Exciting new for nuclear space research!

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will this month start testing uranium-fuelled Stirling engines for use in possible future missions to Mars. The technology has been developed as part of the Kilopower project.

Happy birthday

Happy birthday

Happy birthday to the antiproton!

#Onthisday in 1955, Owen Chamberlain and Emilio SegrĂš, two leading scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, used a newly-built particle accelerator known as the Bevatron to create atomic sub-particles called antiprotons. They are also called negative protons because they are just as large as a proton, but have a negative electric charge.

For several hours, the scientists bombarded copper with protons accelerated to 6.2 billion electron volts of energy to create a total of 60 antiprotons. These are stable particles that are considered antimatter because when they and protons collide, both are annihilated in a burst of energy. The occurrence of antimatter in nature is rare and still a subject of ongoing research.

The discovery of the antiproton earned Chamberlain and SegrĂš equal shares of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1959.

Uranium is a radioactive chemical element that is often used as the basis for fuel in nuclear reactors. One ton of natural uranium can produce more than 40 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, which is equivalent to burning 16,000 tons of coal or 80,000 barrels of oil. Do you know who discovered uranium and when it happened?

It was 227 years ago #onthisday that a leading German chemist, Martin Klaproth, announced a newly discovered element before the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences. He came upon this element, which turned out to be uranium, after extracting a yellow compound from dissolved and neutralized pitchblende, a mostly black uranium-rich ore. Klaproth heated the extracted yellow compound with charcoal and obtained a black powder, which he thought was pure uranium but was actually uranium dioxide. Although he did not isolate the pure form of the element, he is credited as the first scientist to discover the element of uranium.

One of the most important uses of uranium is in the production of atomic energy in nuclear reactors. In the past, uranium was also used in filaments for lamps, toning for photography, and as stains and dyes in leather and wood, among other things.

Nuclear research reactors provide tons of opportunities for new innovations and experiments, but what happens when they are no longer needed? The answer isn’t so straightforward.

Heya!
Hope the finals are done and dusted 😬😎
Just a friendly remainder about the picnic today to be held at 5:30 pm!
Hope to see you all soon there :)

P.S: Do dress warm and drive safe!

Hello all,
Recent events in the community have lead me to send out this email. These types of situations are unfair to our Kuwaiti and Saudi Arabian friends as students, and community members.

It is at times like these that our character as individuals, and as a university is illustrated through our actions, and our words. I would like to ask everyone to join in signing the ISU United in Support page, and show our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters that they are welcome at ISU. Simply follow the link, http://isu.edu/united/ , and enter your name.

Let's display our character as a University as one that is united as a single entity against hatred and bigotry.

Well, thats good news!

Happy Birthday, Wilhelm Röntgen! The father of X-Rays and diagnostic radiology was born exactly 171 years ago #OnThisDay.

Wilhelm Röntgen coined the name X-ray when he used these rays to create an image of his wife’s hand on a photographic plate revealing her bones. In 1901, this achievement made him the first person to ever win the Nobel Prize in Physics.

While many of us are probably most familiar with Röntgen’s X-rays when seeing doctors treat broken bones, and in some languages, X-rays are even called röntgen, but X-rays actually have a wide variety of uses. When used in art and cultural artefact restoration, restorers can assess damage and uncover details hidden in artefacts, unlocking a wealth of information about the past. They are also used to check the quality of everyday items like car tires, cables and wires, and even airplanes through a method called non-destructive testing (NDT), which draws on a combination of X-rays and gamma rays. Scientists are also looking at how they can use X-rays to further studies on nuclear fusion.

Today we can thank Röntgen and the scientists who built on his discovery for the many innovative ways we now use X-rays to improve lives and help people around the world.

Joyeux anniversaire Ă  James Chadwick !

Chadwick, nĂ© en 1891, est sorti de l’UniversitĂ© de Manchester en physique en 1911. Il a ensuite travaillĂ© sur divers projets liĂ©s Ă  la radioactivitĂ© sous la direction d’Ernest Rutherford et obtenu sa maĂźtrise en 1913. En 1932, lors d’une expĂ©rience pendant laquelle il bombardait du bĂ©ryllium avec des particules alpha, Chadwick a fait une dĂ©couverte qui lui a valu le prix Nobel de physique de 1935 (Nobel Prize) : il a prouvĂ© l'existence des #neutrons. La dĂ©couverte de cette particule subatomique a menĂ© en fin de compte Ă  la maitrise de la fission nuclĂ©aire, phĂ©nomĂšne sur lequel repose le processus de production d’électricitĂ© dans les centrales nuclĂ©aires.

Le neutron peut ĂȘtre utilisĂ© dans une multitude d’applications. L’#AIEA fait, entre autres, la promotion de l’utilisation des neutrons dans la surveillance de la qualitĂ© de l’air. L’analyse par activation neutronique, la fluorescence X et l’analyse par faisceaux d’ions peuvent fournir de grands ensembles de donnĂ©es uniques au sujet de la composition Ă©lĂ©mentaire des particules en suspension dans l’air. Ces informations sont indispensables pour dĂ©terminer les sources possibles de pollution atmosphĂ©rique. Consultez l’article ci-aprĂšs pour en savoir plus sur le sujet : https://goo.gl/9JxazU
