Break Through

North Korea is hoping to cozy up to the west. New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson said on CNN yesterday, "the North Koreans are sending good signals, that they're ready to talk directly to the United States." He hosted a North Korean delegation yesterday. He said "they felt that the President Clinton visit was good, that it helped thaw relations, and make them easier." But counter-proliferation's experts say there will be nothing easy about it unless North Korea gives up its nuclear ambitions.

Asking for a Lot

Iran, whose nuclear facilities are under threat of possible Israeli military strikes, proposed Wednesday that a 150-nation conference convening in the fall bans such attacks. Iran says the proposal, revealed to The Associated Press by diplomats and confirmed by a senior Iranian envoy, is not linked to veiled threats by Israel of an attack as a last resort if the international community fails to persuade Tehran to freeze its nuclear activities. Instead, all of the diplomats said the Iranian initiative seeks support for a generally worded document prohibiting all armed attacks against nuclear installations anywhere, when 150 nations convene for the September general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Few nuclear mishaps in Frederick County

Radioactive material gets moved around a lot and with interstate highways crisscrossing Frederick County it could pass through on a regular basis, according to David McIntyre, a spokesman for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which is based in Rockville.

Computing Power Addresses Nuclear Energy Concerns

Scientists at the Nuclear Science and Technology Division of the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Lab are bringing together decades of nuclear energy and safety expertise with high-performance computing to effectively address a range of nuclear energy - and security-related - challenges. One of the goals of the Lab's Nuclear Science and Technology Division is to bring together what we know about nuclear energy, nuclear national security modeling, and simulation capabilities with high-performance computing. That will solve problems that were previously unthinkable, or impractical, in terms of the computing power required to address them. One example is using computational methods and software to simulate radiation, in order to support the design and safety of nuclear facilities.
