UPDATE - Dec. 5, 2014
Argonne staff members enjoyed speaking with attendees at the Argonne booth during the American Nuclear Society Winter Meeting and Expo held in Anaheim, CA, November 9-13, 2014. We were pleased that over 70 attendees participated in our annual Expo raffle for a “Piece of History” - a segment of graphite from Enrico Fermi’s CP-1 reactor. If you were unable to stop by and are interested in Argonne’s current nuclear projects, experimental research and user facilities, you can read more on our brochures page or email us at .
