My grandmother passed away this morning. She and I shared a birthday. It’s sad but she’s in a better place now. She was 94.
I have been in Atlanta for several days now at the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) conference 2014. It always amazes me to see people of all walks of life and all realms of academia and professions come to discuss nuclear issues. I’ve been to talks about global nuclear disarmament, spent fuel, and verification by today’s best and brightest.
One thing I have noticed though is a…
Minor Uranium Isotopes in Enrichment Tails
Originally for my project this summer I wanted to try to model the IR-40 pressurized heavy water reactor (PHWR) to test if the thermohydraulics of the reactor were still sound even at an enrichment level different from the natural uranium design. Ultimately my project was changed and now I am going to be researching minor uranium isotopes. These are a few brief comments on what I hope to learn…
Nuclear Safeguards Course Day 1
I am currently attending the International Nuclear Safeguards Policy and Information Analysis Course at the Monterey Institute of International Studies also co-sposnsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS), and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).
Yesterday was day 1 of the…
I was off by a day.
It was the 25th.
