AHF Profiled in American Physical Society Newsletter

The X-10 Graphite Reactor at Oak Ridge

The America Physical Society (APS) published their quarterly Physics and Society newsletter detailing “issues of both current and historical significance.” Cynthia Kelly’s article on the Manhattan Project historical properties and the Atomic Heritage Foundation was chosen as one of three featured articles for the publication. You can either access the full publication or part of the article through the APS website. 

In the article, Cindy Kelly wrote about the sites at Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, and Hanford that are in need of preservation, the challenges and strides made in paving the way for a National Historical Park, and the organization's efforts in interpretation of the history at each Manhattan Project site. 

Physics and Society is a non-peer-reviewed newsletter that provides commentary, book reviews, and articles on the relation between physics and society. For more information, visit
