November 1957
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Nov1957, Vol. 13 Issue 9, p343
The article offers news briefs related to developments in nuclear industry in the U.S. It is stated that the total amount of uranium acquired by the U.S. in fiscal year 1957 was 16,300 tons in which large part of the increase from the 1958 acquisition, will come from Canada. The sixth session of the International School of Nuclear Science and Engineering was opened at the Argonne National Laboratory. The Engineering Test Reactor has been opened to inspection by the nation's industrial leaders.
