Our friends at Nuclear Energy Information Service (NEIS) in Illinois invite you to a special event commemorating the 75th anniversary of the first nuclear chain reaction–“Where Are the People? The human toll of the Nuclear Age” featuring Arnie Gundersen and Dr. Norma Field.
The event will take place on Saturday, December 2nd from 1:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. at DePaul University-Lincoln Park Campus in Richardson Library, Room 300 (2350 N Kenmore Ave, Chicago, IL).
As more and more reactors close down and the Age of Decommissioning begins, it’s a fair question to ask: Where Are the People?
