In February 2014 the Aerospace Nuclear Science and Technology Division (ANSTD) of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) will hold the 2014 Nuclear and Emerging Technologies for Space (NETS 2014) topical meeting at the Infinity Science Center (bordering the NASA Stennis Space Center). This conference represents the first space nuclear research meeting associated with the NASA Stennis Space Center and follows a successful series of meetings in Albuquerque, NM in 2013 and 2011.
NASA is currently considering capabilities for robotic and crewed missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Strategies that implement advanced power and propulsion technologies, as well as radiation protection, will be important in accomplishing these missions in the future. NETS serves as a major communications network and forum for professionals and students working in the area of space nuclear technology. Every year it facilitates the exchange of information among research and management personnel from international government, industry, academia, and the national laboratory systems. To this end, the NETS 2014 meeting will address topics ranging from overviews of current programs to methods of meeting the challenges of future space endeavors.
