Do-or-Die at Yucca Mountain
By David Ewing Duncan

The regulatory tug-of-war over Nevada's nuclear waste dump has dragged on for decades. Meanwhile, temporary sites across the country are overflowing with radioactive fuel rods - making them perfect targets for terror. As the debate continues, Berkeley Lab is responsible for hydrological and thermal-hydrological-chemical testing and modeling at Yucca Mountain’s Exploratory Studies Facility. Read the full story here.

Nobel laureate Samuel C.C. Ting will speak at a Nuclear Science Division Colloquia concerning the alpha magnetic spectrometer experiment on the international space station today at 11 a.m. in the Building 50 Auditorium. Ting was co-awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1976 for his pioneering work in the discovery of a new heavy elementary particle. In 1977, he was selected as the first recipient of the Thomas Dudley Cabot Institute Professorship at MIT, where he remains today.
